Girl from the South Side and former First Lady. Wife, mother, dog lover. Always hugger-in-chief.

Wishing a wonderful birthday to Malala! When I first met Malala a few years back, I was blown away by her eloquence and her conviction to stand up for girls just like her in every corner of the globe. That conversation helped inspire me to focus more deeply on girls’ education around the world. Right now, there are tens of millions of girls who are not in school—girls who are bright, hardworking, and hungry to learn. To celebrate #MalalaDay, join me and Girls Opportunity Alliance in our work to empower girls in countries like South Africa, Ethiopia, and Tanzania. I hope you'll head over to girlsopportunityalliance.org to learn more and get involved.
