Mrs. Obama told the students of Bell Multicultural High School, whom she visited on Tuesday that, to do whatever it takes to continue in their education after high school. She further exclaimed that it is whether it will be in community college, technical school, a training opportunity or pursuing a four-year college degree.

“I’m here today because I want you to know that my story can be your story,” as introduced by the first lady. “The details might be a little different, but so many of the challenges and triumphs will be just the same.”

In the new policy, Mrs. Obama will be linking with the Education Department to help in President Obama’s plan to make the US go higher in the rank of college graduates from 12th to first by 2020.

Supporters of Mrs. Obama have been in the excitement to know that the first black first lady is using her resume in all of the agendas being raised publicly with the support of the president’s policies. Mrs. Obama is the daughter of a pump worker in Chicago Waterworks and was able to graduate in Princeton University and the Law School of Harvard. She later became an associate to Sydley Austin law firm and also became a health care executive in Chicago.

Mrs. Obama highlighted that she and her brother also came from the same situation as those in low-income families and sees getting a college degree as the door to success. It is also given that though the policy is in accordance to higher education, the first lady’s focus will as always be the youth following the limits of her power.

In her speech, the first lady explained that the students will have the need to some form of higher education so they can build a stable career and provision for their family.

The National Center for Education Statistics reveals that 52% of 2011 high school graduates from low-income families get into university immediately, setting a contrast with high-income families who had fewer enrollment results.

Critics then emerged with this new project stating that the first lady should avoid giving policies that only appeals to a certain part of the population. Professor Catherine Allgor of University of California, Riverside saying that Mrs. Obama should have done the program four years ago said that the idea of the first lady to eat salad for it is healthier is more on the nanny side. “If she came out of the gate with something much more tied to policy, she would have been shot down. Just look at the reaction to her suggestions that people eat salad.”

Due to the popularity of Mrs. Obama’s stint in all of her programs like dancing in a middle school and doing pushups in one of the famous morning TV program to showcase the importance of exercise as well as her opening video at the recently concluded Oscars to give the significance of arts the office of the first lady informed that Mrs. Obama will initiate school visitation in the country and will also use the power of social media to appeal the message that pursuing a higher education is the key do a wider world.

Other popular agenda’s of Mrs. Obama includes her help with military families, evangelizing exercise and healthy food consumption.
