The First Lady’s Travel Diary: Qatar and Jordan
By First Lady Michelle Obama
This post is part of a series authored by First Lady Michelle Obama to share her visit to Qatar and Jordan with middle school and high school students in the U.S.
This week, I will be traveling to Qatar and Jordan — countries located in a part of the world known as the “Middle East” (if you look on a map, it’s just to the east of Africa) — and I want young people like you all across America to join me on this journey!
On this trip, just like on previous international trips, I’ll be focusing on global girls’ education, an issue I care deeply about as a First Lady, a mother of two daughters, and a woman whose life was transformed by my education. You see, neither of my parents went to college, and they didn’t have much money. But they pushed me to work as hard as I could in school, and thanks to a lot of financial aid, I was able to go to college and law school and have all kinds of exciting jobs and opportunities.
