“I see myself in these girls”. I view my kiddos over these females.
Obama said she has traveled the world and met with young women who have not had a chance to receive an education.
“I am honored to follow a woman whom I admire and adore”.
Let Girls Learn is a USA government-wide initiative launched by U.S. President Barack Obama and the First Lady.
After Beyonce finished, First Lady Michelle Obama came out to hug the superstar and reminded fans to participate in the First Lady’s new campaign to promote girls education, asking them to share selfies on social media along with a description of one thing they learned in school, using the hashtag #62MillionGirls. The photos will be posted on 62milliongirls.com to highlight the number of girls who aren’t receiving an education.
“Right now 62 million girls are not in school…they deserve the same chances to get an education as my daughters and your daughters and all of our children”, Obama told the crowd at the fourth annual event aimed at ending extreme poverty by 2030.
“We have millions and trillions of greenbacks but in which the some cash goes will be the military services, stuff that are hopeless to actually society”, she replied. “But it was a pen that really helped us go forward in our lives”.
According to CBSNews, the event, which aired on MSNBC, was hosted by Stephen Colbert, Kerry Washington and other top celebrities.
In addition to Bey and Obama, Coldplay, Eddie Vedder, Ed Sheeran, and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and teen activist Malala Yousafzai were on-hand for the concert.
Obama later was introduced to the stage by Beyoncé after the pop star performed an energetic set.
