Michelle Obama supports 1st-gen college-bound students in 'Beating the Odds' Summit

“You belong here,” was Michelle Obama’s message to 90+ high school students at ‘Reach Higher’, Forbes’ Beating the Odds Summit.

“I see myself in you all. I was where you all were.”It’s the fifth year in a row the former First Lady has attended the event to encourage college-bound students.

Even U.S. women’s national soccer players Rose Lavelle and Mallory Pugh attended, sharing how college prompted them to become World Cup champions today.

The summit supports first-gen students by helping them practically prepare for college.

Subjects explored in this year’s summit are failure, asking for help, empowering your voice as a first-generation student, and mental health.
