Seventeen: First Lady Michelle Obama Is Here to Make Going to College Way Less Stressful

Maybe you want to be a high-powered lawyer, like First Lady Michelle Obama was before she became the FLOTUS. Or maybe you want to work in the White House, like she does now, or become a scientist or a journalist or a teacher! No matter what your big dreams look like, you need a college education to take you there. That’s why Mrs. Obama launched the Better Make Room campaign, which encourages teens just like you to work hard in high school so you can shine in college. (Remember her viral music video that practically broke the Internet? Yeah, she rapped, “If you wanna fly jets, you should go to college. Reach high and cash checks? Fill your head with knowledge.”)

In November, we asked Seventeen readers to submit essays about how you’re overcoming obstacles to secure a spot at your dream school. Two lucky winners — Gemma Busoni and Zaniya Lewis, above — won a spot on our May cover alongside Mrs. Obama, plus they were invited to the White House for a heart-to-heart about applying to college, figuring out the future, and slaying the haters who tell you no. Her advice to Gemma and Zaniya rings true for you, too.

Alan Pyke: Why The Obama Administration Wants To Pay For Prisoners To Go To School

“My professor, Miss Jamie Mullaney, she cried the last day of class. And it made me cry,” Terrell Johnson said, sitting across from Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Attorney General Loretta Lynch at Maryland Correctional Institute-Jessup on Friday morning. “I’m in a place where it’s not good to cry,” said Johnson, who’s in the middle of a prison sentence for selling drugs. “But I didn’t care. I felt like this lady genuinely cares if I get this education. That made me wanna try even harder, because I don’t want to let her down.” Mullaney, the head of Goucher College’s sociology department, wasn’t there to hear Johnson recount how his coursework in the Goucher Prison Education Partnership (GPEP) has changed him.

The Goucher program these men participate in is funded entirely through money the school has raised itself. No state or federal education dollars provide GPEP books, teachers, tutors, and work materials. The program’s costs — about $5,000 per student per year, a sliver of what it costs to incarcerate an adult for 12 months at Jessup — have come entirely from private sources who believe in what professors like Mullaney and renowned historian Jean Harvey Baker and their 70 uniformed, caged students are doing here and at a neighboring women’s facility. But under the pilot program Lynch and Duncan unveiled Friday, partnerships like GPEP will be able to apply for Pell Grant funding. “The cost-benefit of this doesn’t take a math genius to figure out,” Duncan said. “We lock folks up here, $35,000, $40,000 every single year. A Pell Grant is less than $6,000 each year.”

President Barack Obama speaks before signing the "Every Student Succeeds Act," a major education law setting U.S. public schools on a new course of accountability, on Thursday, Dec. 10, 2015, in Washington. The law will change the way teachers are evaluated and how the poorest performing schools are pushed to improve. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)
