Videos: Michelle Obama’s Trip to South Africa

This week, First Lady Michelle Obama visited southern African countries Botswana and South Africa on a trip focused on youth empowerment. Here are two videos recorded while there. We love the line of the first one where she says, “…it’s hard and it’s supposed to be hard. And if it were easy we wouldn’t have anything to do.” In the second video, the intro is great, but if you just want to hear her speech, tune in around 10:00. You’ll hear a South African choir in the background singing a beautiful song, which clearly overwhelms the first lady.
