Michelle Obama Forever First Lady Comment May 2018

Michelle Obama Called Herself Our "Forever First Lady," and We Couldn't Agree More

On May 2, Michelle Obama made an appearance at the 2018 College Signing Day at Temple University in front of 8,000 high school students, wooing the crowd by embracing a very popular nickname that was given to her after she and former President Barack Obama left the White House: the "forever first lady."

"I know you have everything it takes to succeed. I know that you are me. And if I can be standing here as your forever first lady," she said before pausing for the crowd to cheer, "then you can do anything you put your mind to."

The College Signing Day event first started under the Obama administration as part of the former first lady's Reach Higher program, which encourages students to get a university education. Watch the moment for yourselves in the video above, and we promise the forever first lady's rousing speech won't let you down.
