I’m having so much fun with all of you on my #iambecoming tour that i decided to do one final round of events to see folks in some cities we missed! these conversations have been so meaningful for me, and i hope they’ve been meaningful for you all, too. can’t wait to see even more of you in 2019!
In 2009, i met so many promising, beautiful, and brilliant girls at elizabeth garrett anderson school in london. these were girls who didn’t come from much—immigrants and minorities, many of them wearing headscarves—but they had all the potential in the world. in them, i saw myself as i’d once been. it was a visit that filled me with hope and shaped who i became as first lady. today, i returned there to meet the newest group of girls from ega and another school i’d visited, mulberry school for girls—and i walked away just as hopeful as i was almost a decade ago.
to all you inspiring young ladies, stay focused and keep believing in yourselves. just remember that wherever you come from and wherever you go, you belong. #iambecoming
Thank you to @barnesandnoble for hosting me in nyc! i am so thankful to all of you who’ve picked up a copy of my book these past few weeks—i hope each of you finds something in it that’s meaningful for you. #iambecoming
To the awe-inspiring ladies of @girlsclubny: always remember the power and the truth that lies inside your stories. i can’t wait to see what you do in the years ahead. i’m proud of you! #iambecoming@samkassdc
As a public servant, father, and grandfather, president george h.w. bush was an extraordinary example for us all. his spirit of service and decency will be missed by many, including our family. i hope his memory will be a guiding light for our country and those around the world.
@begirl.world, you ladies truly inspire me. keep working hard and believing in yourselves because your futures are as big as you can dream. i can’t wait to see you tonight at the wells fargo center! have fun! #iambecoming
For #givingtuesday, the @globalgirlsalliance asked young women what they're thankful for this holiday season—and how they plan to pay it forward to girls around the world.
i hope you'll follow their lead. support projects for girls at gofundme.com/globalgirlsalliance.
Thank you @blackgirlsrock for hosting me at the @bgcboston earlier today. to the young women i met today, you all blew me away with your stories, poise, and ambition. i’m so excited that you’ll be joining me tonight at @tdgarden! #iambecoming
