Former first lady partook in MTV Friday’s Prom-athon, a nationwide non-comparable dance experience for the whole class of 2020. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was impossible for high school’s across the nation to celebrate pro. But, Obama celebrated and uplifted the students with some motivatioanl words.
Hey Class of 2020! Look, I know that none of you planned on missing out on so many senior year milestones, things like sports tournaments, or prom nights,” Obama began. “But I am so proud of what I’ve seen from you all. You’re preserving through everything you’re facing and look, there is no playbook for any of this, and yet you’ve shown creativity and resilience far beyond your years.
Mrs. Obama added that she wants everyone to
breathe deep, dance your heart out and enjoy this Prom-a-thon.
You’ve earned it and, as always, if you know anyone who is not registered to vote, just tell them to text PROM to 56005,
It might be the most important thing you do right now.
