As the Obama’s time in the White House comes to a close, there’s been a pretty interesting development over the past few months. It seems that President Obama is not the only one that can bring it in the oratorical department, as First Lady Michelle Obama seems to have developed quite a knack for turning into a verbal powerhouse on the stage.
As USA Today reports, Michelle delivered her final remarks as First Lady in an event geared towards honoring the 2017 School Counselor of the Year, and she didn’t disappoint.
"If your family doesn't have much money, I want you to remember that in this country, plenty of folks, including me and my husband, we started out with very little. But with a lot of hard work and a good education, anything is possible. Even becoming president. That's what the American dream is all about," she said at one point.
It was clearly an emotional moment for the First Lady, and it also helped make crystal clear the fact that she has a bright future ahead in politics - if she chooses to go that route.
"Being your first lady has been the greatest honor of my life, and I hope I've made you proud," she continued.
While her speech was very powerful, so was her rust-colored, long sleeve sheath dress. Many have speculated that Michelle's color of choice, for important occasions, is red. It is called her ‘power’ color. It was definitely the right choice for her final speech, it didn’t disappoint
