Michelle Obama kicking off mentoring program

| 1 Comment

First Lady Michelle Obama launches a White House mentoring program on Monday, starting with a session of girls from Washington area schools paired with women from the White House East and West Wings. On Wednesday, Mrs. Obama hosts classical music stars for a White House Music Series event, to include a workshop with music students. My story on Mrs. Obama's week ahead is here.

I think it is wonderful that she is so busy. I love the openess of the White House. The parties, the concerts and all the people who are not VIPs who have been welcomed inside. I think that the students and others will be so fortunate to have pictures of themselves with members of the first family. This use to be a rare occasion to have a picture with a member of the First Family or being at the White House. And I just gasped with pride to see Native Americans being entertained at the White House. I love that they move around Washington, D.C. and the common people are able to spot them around town. Don't really remember all this ever happening before. I love it.
