Michelle 'represents tall well,' 17-year-old basketball player says

| | Comments (0)

Seventeen-year-old Ryaan Frazier, who has played basketball since sixth grade, has always been taller than her peers.

So the 5-foot-10 high school junior was particularly gleeful when Barack Obama won -- not just because he made history, but because his soon-to-be first lady also has height (almost 5-foot-11).

"Michelle Obama is going to make a great first lady," said Ryaan, a forward and center on Chicago International Charter School's basketball team.

"She represents tall well. She's pretty, smart and very confident. She exudes self-respect and power. When I see her, I know there ain't no stopping me."
