On Wednesday, Michelle Obama made her last appearance as the First Lady of the United States on a show. She appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show.
Michelle joked and talked about her husband’s emotional speech from the previous night. As she recalls the moment, she feels like crying again, she “didn’t think it would be this emotional”.
Leaving the White House has been tough for all of them, family members and Obama’s team.
The First Lady also proceeded to thank all those who have stood by her and her family during this eight years. She thanks her mother, saying that she couldn’t have done this without her presence: “I love you, Mom. I’m proud of you Mom because you represented this country well too.”
Fallon helped her write thank you notes for her husband in a funny game: “Thank you Barack for proving you’re not a lame duck, but my very own silver fox.”
Alongside Jerry Seinfeld and Dave Chapelle she played catchphrase. At the end of the show, Stevie Wonder dedicated her a song.
Last week, on January 6, Michelle also delivered one last speech, that left people speechless and teary. At the 2017 School Counselor of the Year, she gave a powerful speech, in which she left one more advice to teenagers. She reassured them and told them to always remember that they matter, “don’t be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourself with a good education.”
Michelle Obama, in the eight years as the First Lady of the US, has fought on and on for delivering a good education to young people everywhere. One of the legacies that she lives to America is the right to a good education.
Both her and her husband will be greatly missed by the American citizens. Their role and presence at the White House will never be forgotten.
