Wife of the former US president, Michelle Obama, shared a throw back photo on her social media page reflecting on the importance of good education.
In commensurating the World Charity day, Michelle paired with the photo, an inspiring message to promote the value of giving a girl child education.
“…I learned a lot in school—how to do my multiplication tables and structure a paragraph, yes, but also how to push myself, be a good friend, and dust myself off after a failure.
It’s so easy for us to take our education for granted, especially here in the United States. Right now, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school. I believe every girl on the planet deserves the same kind of opportunities that I’ve had—a chance to fulfill her potential and pursue her dreams.
We know that when we give girls a chance to learn, they’ll seize it. And when they do, our whole world benefits. Girls who go to school have healthier children, higher salaries, lower poverty rates, and they can even help boost their entire nation’s economy…because the future of our world is only as bright as our girls.”
Michelle Obama is known to be a woman who inspires the world around her, including young girls and women. She focuses her attention on social issues such as poverty, healthy living and education and is particular about imparting the next generation of youngsters.
