Michelle Obama interacted and encouraged the high school and college students to work hard.

“Find your own voice and be proud of it,” she said. “And then, sing your butt off. Or work your butt off. Or whatever you do, do it until your butt comes off.” She continued, “OK, that quote is going to be kind of funny in the papers. I already know it. My communications people are like, What?’ But you guys all know what I meant-be good at what you do.”

“As someone who always shares this house with brilliant, creative, talented, somewhat stubborn women, I think Women’s History Month is the perfect time to honor a few more: the women of soul,” said President Obama.
