To celebrate International Women’s Day (8th March) we thought it would be great to share this video with you, created by a woman who we find inspirational.
Michelle Obama, the First Lady of the United States (or FLOTUS as the title is also known), was the first person in her family to go to uni and admits that she found it a little overwhelming to begin with. In her role as first lady she has set up an outreach programme aimed at inspiring young people to take charge of their future. Her message?
Her video entitled ‘Go to college’, or uni as it’s called in the UK, is funny but has a serious message and is part of her ‘better make room’ campaign. We at UP for Uni love this video and share Michelle’s hopes to
‘… honour and empower young people who are working hard in school and pursuing their dreams’.
