How do you build self esteem in children? I'm sure these young women in London will remember Michelle Obama's speech for the rest of their lives.
Being Smart is Cool
Here are some quotes from Michelle Obama:
"By getting a good education you too can control your own destiny"
"The reason why I'm standing here is because of education"
"Being smart was cooler than anything in the world"
"You too can realize your dreams and then your job is to reach back and help someone just like you do the same thing"
"Your success will be determined by your own fortitude, your own confidence, your own individual hard work"
"Communities and countries and ultimately the world are only as strong as the health of their women. Part of that wealth includes an outstanding education"
Here's the second part to this video where she is mobbed by the students. It would be nice to see the full video.
WOW! Inspiring words from an inspiring woman.
