“One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.”
Michelle Obama makes her point to teens and all of us, regardless of age, to get an education. Discover what you love to do, what you are good at, then obtain the skills to make that your life’s joy.
“You have to stay in school. You have to. You have to go to college. You have to get your degree. Because that’s the one thing people can’t take away from you is your education. And it is worth the investment.”
Here are other women you can emulate. Women who share their stories, motivate and provide hope.
