First Lady Michelle Obama spoke on Tuesday [see media] at a fundraiser for Girls Inc. in Omaha, Nebraska.

Mrs. Obama encouraged the young women to dream big, work hard, and strive for excellence. At one point, it almost looks as though she choked up a bit talking about the futures for the girls.

Mentoring and encouraging young women is nothing new to the first lady. Her office regularly mentors youth in the Washington, D.C. area. Many times Mrs. Obama has reminded people of the importance of investing in girls, which was in line with Tuesday’s message.

I think it’s really great how Mrs. Obama continues to stay focused on youth even from her position of power. Very cool!
