At a panel hosted by Glamour in Harlem on Tuesday, First Lady Michelle Obama decided to drop some major truth bombs. “Compete with the boys,” she told the attendees of “The Power of an Educated Girl.” “Beat the boys.”
She then took that sentiment a step further: “There is no boy, at this age, cute enough or interesting enough to stop you from getting an education,” the First Lady said. “If I had worried about who liked me and who thought I was cute when I was your age, I wouldn’t be married to the president of the United States.” She then proceeded to mime dropping the mic. (Pour one out for Sasha and Malia in this difficult time of mom embarrassment.)
Hopefully the girls who received her message will shoot beyond marrying the president, to becoming the president.
