Embrace Yourself

"Growing up on the South Side; not having a lot of resources; struggling through some of the best schools; being one of a few Black women in the room at a board room, at a table — that has prepared me for this," Obama told a group of Chicago teens preparing to head off to college. "So I embrace my background. And I want all of you to do that no matter where you go."
