I ❤ NY

6 day ago

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

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.

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.

From listening to Stevie Wonder and  @earthwindandfire growing up to  @Beyonce and  @JanelleMonae during my time in the White House, music has always been a defining part of who I've become. Thanks to my friend  @Questlove for curating these amazing playlists! Check them out on  @spotify and  @pandora.  #IAmBecoming
