Learning how to maneuver during your college years can be daunting. However, advice from The First Lady is sure to take the edge off. Michelle Obama discussed the importance of finding the college or university that best fits your needs.
“I don’t want them to think, ‘Oh I should go to these top schools’.”
Looking lovely in pink and red, Michelle Obama graces the May cover of Seventeen Magazine. The ‘Advice’ issue allows FLOTUS to open up about the importance of staying true to yourself and running the world. It’s no surprise to learn of Mrs. Obama’s stance on certain things, since she has been very vocal about her views on education and women’s empowerment initiatives. During the interview she mentions how doubters tried to interfere with her application process. “When it was time for me to apply to colleges there were some counselors who said, ‘Maybe, with Princeton, you’re reaching a little high,’ ” she recalls. “And I thought, ‘You really don’t think I can do it?”
Obama went on to graduate from Princeton University cum laude and then attend Harvard’s prestigious law school. Her oldest daughter Malia is set to start her freshman year of college this fall. There is no word on where she will attend but she has narrowed it down to two choices: Barnard College and New York University.
Choosing the right college is like choosing the right car. No matter what model, it will guide you down the path you are destined for. Michelle Obama is doing her part on a mass scale with just little under a year left in The White House. The official Seventeen Magazine May 2018 issue is set to hit stands soon.
