Michelle Obama called herself the “forever First Lady” as she addressed thousands of high school students at 2018 College Signing Day in Philadelphia – an event to celebrate students who chose to go to college.
“I know you have everything it takes to succeed,” she said, speaking to more than 8,000 high school seniors. “I know that 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. So remember this moment when you’re out there.”
The line from the popular former First Lady drew cheers from the crowd.
It’s Obama’s fifth time celebrating a College Signing Day event, a project she started in 2014 when she and President Barack Obama were still in the White House. This year, celebrity guests included Robert DeNiro, Zendaya, Camila Cabello, Rebel Wilson and Bradley Cooper.
