Michelle Obama's Final Speech as First Lady

Michelle Obama
Pol Light Moment #146 happened on January 6, 2017, when Michelle Obama gave her final speech as First Lady of the United States at an event at the White House honoring the 2017 school counselor of the year recipient, Terri Tchorzynski. Michelle Obama was the First Lady of the United States from 2009 to 2017.

In her speech she said, "I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong. So don't be afraid. You hear me, young people? Don't be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourself with a good education. Then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example with hope; never fear (, Kevin Liptak, January 6, 2017)."

The following is a video from ABC News of the remarks Michelle Obama made on January 6, 2017. 

In her speech Michelle Obama also thanked her family and staff who have helped her in the eight years she was in her role as First Lady (Your Story, Press Trust of India, January 11, 2017).
