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.

      FLOTUS in Qatar-12

      -First lady Michelle Obama visits students from
      the Doha British School and the Doha Modern Indian School on Wednesday
      during the World Innovation Summit for Education in Doha, Qatar.

      The optics alone of a tall and educated black woman speaking on behalf of girls of color gaining education is slay-worthy. It’s one thing for another white lady to come along and say that education is important.

      But the first black FLOTUS and Harvard Law School graduate? Priceless.

    Our FLOTUS looks so classy, even in these conservative clothes.

    Our FLOTUS has been such a gift for us…too bad too many people don’t see it.

    Look at our Queen! Our beautiful, radiant, brilliant, awesome FLOTUS! I’m just bursting with pride! Thank God she arrived safely in Doha. Can’t wait to see her shine as only she can in her marvelously genuine and wonderfully impressive way.
