MEXICO CITY – First lady Michelle Obama is wrapping up her visit to Mexico with a round-table discussion with a group of young leaders.

Mrs. Obama came to Mexico City this week to launch an international agenda that's about inspiring young people around the world to become civically engaged.

At breakfast Thursday, she planned to talk to the young leaders about their experiences and encourage them to continue being active in their communities.

In a speech Wednesday, Mrs. Obama said responsibility for meeting the world's defining challenges soon will fall to the younger generation.

She was due in San Diego later Thursday to visit a community farm and promote her campaign against childhood obesity.
