Speak On It

****

Betsy Klein

In her first major speech since leaving office, former first lady Michelle Obama made an impassioned argument for the importance of educators in communities across the country, saying the example they set is “what makes America great.” “Our counselors and educators have a far bigger impact on our kids’ lives than any president or first lady. … You all serve as living, breathing examples of the kind of people they should aspire to be,” she said, speaking at the School Counselor of the Year ceremony at the Kennedy Center, a collaboration between the American School Counselor Association and part of her Reach Higher initiative on higher education she spearheaded as first lady.

“And trust me, I know this work isn’t easy, especially right now. I know there’s a lot of anxiety out there. And there’s no denying that our kids, what they see on TV, the kind of behavior being modeled in public life — all of that, yes — impacts their behavior and their character,” Obama said. “But at times like this the work you are all doing is even more urgent. It’s even more critically important. See, you all have the power to teach our kids what it means to go high when others go low. You have that power.”

First Lady Michelle Obama On #BetterMakeRoom

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.
