Seventeen Magazine initiated a campaign called Girl Power. In the video below, in support of the campaign, the First Lady shares what she believes is the one thing that opened doors for her that she never could have imagined.
As can be expected of Mrs. Obama, she gives young women a little dose of inspiration, sharing what “power” means to her and how every young girl can step into her own power and make her dreams come true.
“I believe that girl power is about being the very best version of who you are,” says Mrs O. “And that means showing up for class, paying attention — it means really challenging yourself.”
It’s not surprising to see Mrs. Obama take part in a campaign that both inspires and motivates young women considering that Mrs. Obama has two daughters of her own that she has made many scarifices for her.
When the First Family moved into the White House, Mrs. Obama invited her mother to move in with them so that her daughters would not only have their mother to love and care for them but so that they could also have the benefit of having their grandmother as a source of love and care.
What advice would you give to young women today so they can harness their power?
