play_circle_filled At the @ObamaFoundation Summit I had the chance to sit down with inspiring women and men from the @girlsopportunityalliance community. Hard work like this takes courage. It takes leadership. And these leaders are making strides in global girls&amprsquo education by breaking through the barriers that keep adolescent girls out of school. I am so proud of what they&amprsquore accomplishing despite the challenges they face. We&amprsquore all better off because of it..

Yesterday at the #ObamaSummit I was thrilled to spend time with leaders from the @girlsopportunityalliance community. From Ethiopia to Guatemala to Vietnam these women and men face different challenges but they share the same dream a world where every girl has the chance to pursue her education and fulfill her potential. That&amprsquos why they&amprsquore working so hard to break boundaries start new conversations in their communities and provide crucial support and resources to adolescent girls. I know that it&amprsquos difficult sometimes isolating work but these remarkable leaders are showing up each day hoping to make a difference for girls who deserve so much. And after our time together yesterday I can tell that they&amprsquore doing just that. I&amprsquom so proud of each of them..

Craig knew me as Miche long before the world knew me as Michelle Obama. Today at the #ObamaSummit alongside journalist Isabel Wilkerson we shared our memories of Chicago the place that made us who we are. Another special memory to share with my brother in our hometown..

Throughout my years in the White House I spent a lot of time with our nation&amprsquos military caregivers. They&amprsquore the people&ampmdashspouses parents siblings children and many others&ampmdashwho give so much to care for loved ones who&amprsquove been wounded in service to our country. I can&amprsquot tell you how powerful their stories are&ampmdashthese women and men fundamentally changed me. They changed the way I see service and the way I see this country. They&amprsquore folks who upend their lives putting careers on hold and moving across the country. They&amprsquore taking on the responsibilities of entire households while learning to care for physical and emotional needs in a new way. They&amprsquore simply incredible and over these past few years my hope was to help give a little something back to those who&amprsquove given our country so much. That&amprsquos why I&amprsquom so thankful for the work that the @elizabethdolefoundation does every day to celebrate and support our nation&amprsquos caregivers&ampmdashand it&amprsquos why I hope you&amprsquoll find a way to do the same in your community..

It doesn&amprsquot always feel good in the moment. But after the fact I&amprsquom always glad I hit the gym. How did you all take care of yourself on this #SelfCareSunday? 💪🏾.

play_circle_filled Happy International #DayoftheGirl everyone! 
A year ago today the @ObamaFoundation launched the @GirlsOpportunityAlliance to empower adolescent girls through education. 
Over the years I&amprsquove had the opportunity to meet so many inspiring girls from all around the world. I&amprsquove seen the promise unique to each one of them&ampmdashand the resolve they have inside to get their education. They&amprsquore the stories and the smiling faces that have inspired me to keep lifting up these young women so they can fulfill their boundless potential. 
Today on the Day of the Girl Im thrilled to share the news that in December Ill be traveling to Asia to meet with some of these girls and the organizations that support them. I&amprsquoll be going to Vietnam where the Girls Opportunity Alliance is collaborating with @RoomtoRead to shine a light on important efforts to empower girls. I can&amprsquot wait to share the incredible stories I find there with you and in the meantime I hope you&amprsquoll take a moment to check out this one from the @rockpaperscissorschildrensfund which provides bikes to girls to help them get to school quickly and safely. 
On the Day of the Girl and every day I hope that all of you will find a way to support adolescent girls around the world. You don&amprsquot have to fly to Vietnam&ampmdashyou can host a bake sale organize a project with your friends get your office involved and so much more. Hit the link in my bio to check out the projects through the Girls Opportunity Alliance Fund and let me know how you&amprsquore taking action..

Leading up to tomorrow&amprsquos #DayOfTheGirl Ive been thinking about how from a young age girls are often shushed when they speak up or they&amprsquore set aside as if in a delicate box so they don&amprsquot break. These patterns which begin in our earliest years don&amprsquot just affect us as girls&ampmdashthey shape who we become as women. I thought about this last week when I spoke with these incredible young ladies in Dallas who told me about the obstacles they&amprsquove overcome. For them and so many others it can be difficult to open up and share your story if you&amprsquore not confident that people will accept you for who you are. Their stories moved me to keep finding new ways to make sure that every girl and young woman has the support&ampmdashand the confidence&ampmdashto recognize that her story matters. So I wanted to ask you today Who in your life showed you that you were valued when you were younger? And how do you show the girls in your life today that they&amprsquore valued?.

play_circle_filled With the International #DayoftheGirl coming up on Friday I want to share a terrific example of the kinds of stories that are possible when we recognize the boundless promise inside every girl&ampmdashand invest in it.

This is Diana who is from a small village in Malawi. Growing up Diana would wake up every morning before sunrise and walk for two hours to get to school on time. Her hard work paid off when a scholarship to secondary school from @AGEAfrica changed her life&ampmdashand then Diana went on to become the first person from her family and her village to attend university.

AGE Africa supports girls like Diana every single day and it&amprsquos one of the incredible organizations that we&amprsquore spotlighting through the @GirlsOpportunityAlliance. I hope you&amprsquoll visit the link in my bio to learn more about these projects and support them however you can..
