Michelle Obama celebrated International Women’s Day with a surprise visit to female students at a combined middle and high school in Washington, D.C.
She announced the visit on Snapchat Wednesday morning, saying: “We’re celebrating International Women’s Day with a group of amazing young women. We’re going to talk about education — the importance of it in their lives and in mine.”
Another snap showed the moment Obama walked into a classroom and surprised the stunned young women, who responded with a chorus of “Oh my Gods!”
“Did you know?” the former first lady said with a smile. “You didn’t know.”
“This school is amazing,” she added as she greeted the girls.
After a round of hugs, Obama and the young students sat down to talk about education and their goals for the future.
