Michelle Obama is celebrating International Women's Day by inspiring girls up close and in person. Today, the former first lady surprised a group of female students a Cardozo Education Campus in Washington, D.C. Luckily, she documented the whole experience on Snapchat.
Before launching the surprise, Obama explained her plan to the camera in a hushed voice. "We're celebrating International Women's Day with a group of amazing young women. We're going to talk about education and the importance of it in their lives and in mine," she said in a video.
When she walked in the room, which appeared to be a school library, the students freaked out.
Obama is a known supporter of education. She's established the organizations Let Girls Learn, which supports adolescent girls attending school around the world, and the Reach Higher Initiative, which encourages all students in the U.S. to pursue a college-level education.
It makes total sense, then, that she'd want to spend International Women's Day at a local school.
She also gave out some hugs.
After the intro, Obama gathered the young women in the room, plus a few administrators from the school for a group discussion about education.
Naturally, they posed for a group photo at the end of the visit.
