The First Lady hugs Truddie Dee Hawkins, a student at Anacostia High School in Washington, D.C.
The First Lady spoke to the students about how her daughters have to wake herself up every morning and prepare for school. She taught Truddie and the other students a lesson in ownership saying, “responsibility is something you practice, no matter what it’s like, you’re not going to wake up and just be happy about getting up at 5:45 A.M. No one is. I don’t like getting up that early. But I get up because I have to and it’s a part of being responsible.”
