Michelle Obama has often taken the liberty of describing herself as something she is not, and now this includes being America’s “forever First Lady”.
The former first lady made this claim on Wednesday as she addressed the College Signing Day in Philadelphia. Most audience members were high school students.
To a crowd of over 8,000 high school seniors at Temple University, Obama, 54, uttered that she, the “forever first lady,” and the entire nation is counting on them to succeed.
“We need you all to be successful… We have such high hopes for you. See, I am not one of those doubters. I know that you have everything it takes to succeed,” Obama said.
“I know you are me, and if I can be standing here as your forever first lady, then you can do anything you put your mind to,” she continued drawing huge applause from the audience.
