First Lady Michelle Obama gets Real on Tuesday, January 26, as the ladies travel to the White House to sit down with FLOTUS to discuss the “Better Make Room” education movement, a part of the Reach Higher initiative. During this pivotal conversation, the First Lady reveals who did better in school – her or the President? Mrs. Obama also reveals a few of her “firsts,” including a description of her first night at college.
The “Better Make Room” campaign empowers students to pursue a “better” tomorrow by taking charge of their future. Through “Better Make Room,” Generation Z students (aged 14-19) can obtain information on signing up for the SAT and ACT, applying to college, pursuing financial aid and more. They can also connect with other students to share stories about their goals, their progress and what inspires them. “Better Make Room” and “Reach Higher” are both dedicated to helping the U.S. meet President Obama’s goal of American once again having the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by 2020.
