On Thursday Michelle Obama stopped over in Milwaukee as part of her book tour and had a surprise up her sleeve when she met with students from her Reach Higher Initiative.


Set to speak at the Miller High Life Theater late on Thursday afternoon, Michelle and the late-night TV host Conan O’Brien, moderator for her appearance later that day, surprised students from her initiative that morning with some support and inspiration.

Fourteen juniors from all over Milwaukee part of the Reach Higher Initiative came together at Milwaukee Collegiate Academy where they got advice about college life and the importance of higher education, the reason for the creation of the initiative to begin with.

The unsuspecting students were elated by the surprise visit and listened to Michelle and Conan open up about insecurities and struggles they had to overcome.


During their round table talk, the group went into topics of admissions and SAT testing. Michelle elaborated more on how admissions work:

"Admissions offices look at all of that," said Mrs. Obama. "They look at the whole student. You don't want to ever cancel yourself because maybe you missed one of those. I didn't let that happened to me, and I wound up getting into every school I applied for."

The former first lady reiterated that one shouldn’t judge oneself by what others say you are or can do as she continued:

"One thing you have to remember is you can't define yourself by other peoples limited expectations of you because people will do that. People will try to put you in boxes that make sense in their head and sometimes young people are the victims of that."

At the end of her talk with the students, they all received a copy of her book along with free tickets to attend her book tour event later on.


Although they mostly not a surprise like Thursday’s meeting with the students, Michelle had made a point of meeting with community groups along every stop she makes while on tour.

In December Michelle made quite an impact on the members of the national nonprofit, Public Allies when she stopped over in San Jose. The organization aims to provide youth from different backgrounds with leadership skills and to develop their own abilities.

The group of 30 young men and women, mainly Latino and black attended a workshop at the community center and felt inspired by Michelle’s motivational words of encouragement to become the best version of themselves.

During her visit, Michelle also met with Sam Liccardo the Mayor of San Jose, who only had words of appreciation for the former first lady’s efforts as he said:


“It’s wonderful to have Michelle Obama in town; she brings a refreshing inspiration to a nation badly in need of it. This evening, I told her that her legacy had taken root in San Jose, as we’ve housed more than 1,240 homeless veterans since she launched a national campaign in 2015.”

Michelle’s popularity reached the point where many fans had asked her to run for president in 2020. When she recently got asked the same, Michelle decided to share her plans for the future.
