The First Lady of the United States comforted a student at the recent event.


On April 9, 2018, Melania Trump held an event with 13 middle school students in the Blue Room of the White House in Washington.

One student accidentally knocked a drinking glass off a table toward the end of the event. The first lady moved in to calm him, saying it's not a big deal, as reported by NTD.

During the discussion in the White House's Blue Room, the 47-year-old former fashion model talked about the issues that the students are facing.


Melania was joined by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, who served as the current United States Secretary of Education since 2017.

“I’m very excited that you’re here today with me, and thank you in advance for sharing your stories and your thoughts about your struggles and challenges,” NTD quoted her as saying at the event.

Melania added that she wants to support the children to become the best that they can be and that with the help of the students who attended the event, they can achieve more positive outcomes.


President Donald Trump's wife had the students share their names and favorite hobbies, as well as how they feel at home or at school.

She and Betsy also asked the group of children to write on a board how they were feeling.

Melania began the session by writing 'Excited' on the board. The students then wrote that they felt, 'happy,' 'nervous' and 'responsible.'

Toward the end, the student, who had just written that he felt "energized," accidentally knocked over a water glass on the table. He froze, but Melania put a comforting hand on his back.

"No problem," she said. "Don't worry, it's just a water, okay?"

According to the White House, children who attended were ages 10 to 13.
