Wale to join the First Lady in push for better education
Michelle Obama has relentlessly made the country aware of her commitment making quality education ubiquitous, and on Thursday, D.C. native Wale will join her in those valiant efforts.
According to an official White House press release, FLOTUS will join Wale and several scholars on a panel at a White House summit, where they will address over 100 students that “have overcome substantial obstacles to persist through high school and make it to college.”
Wale had this to say about the huge opportunity:
I’m beyond honored & grateful to be involved in the First Lady’s “Reach Higher” initiative & to have the opportunity to sit down with her, as well as perform for the kids of D.C. I believe that the youth are the first step in creating a better country, so to be involved in a program that aims to enrich their lives is truly the greatest reward,” says Wale. “Having grown up in Washington, D.C., being invited to the White House by the First Lady is a dream come true. Thank you to Mrs. Obama & her entire staff for this opportunity.
On Thursday afternoon, following the panel discussion, Wale will perform, which will undoubtedly be a huge moment for him.
