Yesterday at the #ObamaSummit, I was thrilled to spend time with leaders from the @girlsopportunityalliance community. From Ethiopia to Guatemala to Vietnam, these women and men face different challenges, but they share the same dream: a world where every girl has the chance to pursue her education and fulfill her potential. That’s why they’re working so hard to break boundaries, start new conversations in their communities, and provide crucial support and resources to adolescent girls. I know that it’s difficult, sometimes isolating work, but these remarkable leaders are showing up each day, hoping to make a difference for girls who deserve so much. And after our time together yesterday, I can tell that they’re doing just that. I’m so proud of each of them.

Craig knew me as Miche long before the world knew me as Michelle Obama. Today at the #ObamaSummit alongside journalist Isabel Wilkerson, we shared our memories of Chicago, the place that made us who we are. Another special memory to share with my brother in our hometown.

Throughout my years in the White House, I spent a lot of time with our nation’s military caregivers. They’re the people—spouses, parents, siblings, children, and many others—who give so much to care for loved ones who’ve been wounded in service to our country. I can’t tell you how powerful their stories are—these women and men fundamentally changed me. They changed the way I see service and the way I see this country. They’re folks who upend their lives, putting careers on hold and moving across the country. They’re taking on the responsibilities of entire households while learning to care for physical and emotional needs in a new way. They’re simply incredible, and over these past few years, my hope was to help give a little something back to those who’ve given our country so much. That’s why I’m so thankful for the work that the @elizabethdolefoundation does every day to celebrate and support our nation’s caregivers—and it’s why I hope you’ll find a way to do the same in your community.

It doesn’t always feel good in the moment. But after the fact, I’m always glad I hit the gym. How did you all take care of yourself on this #SelfCareSunday? 💪🏾

Happy International #DayoftheGirl, everyone!
A year ago today, the @ObamaFoundation launched the @GirlsOpportunityAlliance to empower adolescent girls through education.
Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many inspiring girls from all around the world. I’ve seen the promise unique to each one of them—and the resolve they have inside to get their education. They’re the stories and the smiling faces that have inspired me to keep lifting up these young women so they can fulfill their boundless potential.
Today, on the Day of the Girl, I'm thrilled to share the news that in December, I'll be traveling to Asia to meet with some of these girls and the organizations that support them. I’ll be going to Vietnam, where the Girls Opportunity Alliance is collaborating with @RoomtoRead to shine a light on important efforts to empower girls. I can’t wait to share the incredible stories I find there with you, and in the meantime, I hope you’ll take a moment to check out this one from the @rockpaperscissorschildrensfund, which provides bikes to girls to help them get to school quickly and safely.
On the Day of the Girl and every day, I hope that all of you will find a way to support adolescent girls around the world. You don’t have to fly to Vietnam—you can host a bake sale, organize a project with your friends, get your office involved, and so much more. Hit the link in my bio to check out the projects through the Girls Opportunity Alliance Fund and let me know how you’re taking action.

Leading up to tomorrow’s #DayOfTheGirl, I've been thinking about how, from a young age, girls are often shushed when they speak up, or they’re set aside, as if in a delicate box so they don’t break. These patterns, which begin in our earliest years, don’t just affect us as girls—they shape who we become as women. I thought about this last week, when I spoke with these incredible young ladies in Dallas, who told me about the obstacles they’ve overcome. For them and so many others, it can be difficult to open up and share your story if you’re not confident that people will accept you for who you are. Their stories moved me to keep finding new ways to make sure that every girl and young woman has the support—and the confidence—to recognize that her story matters. So I wanted to ask you today: Who in your life showed you that you were valued when you were younger? And how do you show the girls in your life today that they’re valued?

With the International #DayoftheGirl coming up on Friday, I want to share a terrific example of the kinds of stories that are possible when we recognize the boundless promise inside every girl—and invest in it.

This is Diana, who is from a small village in Malawi. Growing up, Diana would wake up every morning before sunrise and walk for two hours to get to school on time. Her hard work paid off when a scholarship to secondary school from @AGEAfrica changed her life—and then Diana went on to become the first person from her family and her village to attend university.

AGE Africa supports girls like Diana every single day, and it’s one of the incredible organizations that we’re spotlighting through the @GirlsOpportunityAlliance. I hope you’ll visit the link in my bio to learn more about these projects and support them however you can.

27 years ago, this guy promised me a life full of adventure. I’d say he’s delivered. Here’s to our next chapter of becoming empty nesters and discovering what’s next—while still feeling the magic that brought us together all those years ago. Happy anniversary, Barack. 💕

Chicago, Illinois

When I think back to my childhood, I remember moments like this with my brother Craig. We grew up on the South Side of Chicago, in a diverse and changing neighborhood, hanging out with friends from all backgrounds. Today, I’ve got my old neighborhood on my mind as the @ObamaFoundation announces its third #ObamaSummit, which will take place not far from where this picture was taken.
At the summit, we’ll welcome authors and artists, luminaries, and leaders to the South Side for a special conversation about how places like these reveal our purpose and make us into the people we’ve become. @BarackObama and I will share our own stories too—about how Chicago shaped our journey and how we hope the Obama Presidential Center will shape the journeys of others.
You can join in by visiting obama.org, submitting a photo of a place that shaped you, and letting us know how that place gives you purpose. Can’t wait to hear your stories.

Thank you to my friend, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex @sussexroyal, a thoughtful leader who is breaking the mold and making our world better for it. Whether meeting with our @ObamaFoundation Leaders or helping girls around the world seek the education they deserve, she is an inspiration to so many.
