On January 20th, US President Barack Obama will end his term and he and his family will leave the White House. During her last official speech as US First Lady, Michelle Obama spoke at an education conference sending a special message to the future generation.
Two weeks before she and her family leave the White House, First Lady Michelle Obama gave an emotional farewell speech yesterday (Friday). “For all the young people in this room and those that are watching, know that this country belongs to you,” Mrs. Obama said during her final speech to honor the 2017 School Counselor of the Year. “To all of you. From every background and walk of life.”
Mrs. Obama also addressed US President-elect Donald Trump’s controversial remarks against immigrants. “If you or your parents are immigrants, know that you are part of a proud American tradition – the infusion of new cultures, talents and ideas, generation after generation, that has made us the greatest country on earth,” Mrs. Obama said.
“Being your first lady has been the greatest honor of my life,” Mrs. Obama added holding back tears. “And I hope I’ve made you proud.”
