play_circle_filled I can still remember the mix of excitement, hope, anxiety, and fear that accompanied me everywhere I went during my first year of college. If I could tell my younger self one thing, it would be to slow down and take a breath – you’ve got this. And that’s exactly what I want to say to all of you out there who are just starting college. You’ve got this, and I cannot wait to see where your journey takes you and everything you learn and achieve along the way. Tune in now to watch as four first-year college students share a bit about their own journey during their first semester. #ReachHigher @attndotcom @reachhigher

I loved spending my Saturday with @Oprah and all of the inspiring people who came out for #Oprahs2020VisionTour at Barclays Center. When we make wellness a priority, we’re better able to show up to all areas of our lives. For me, that means sticking to the basics: plenty of sleep, regular exercise, and full, healthy meals. What does wellness mean to you? #SelfcareSunday

photo_library School counselors play such a crucial role in the lives of our young people, pushing them to dream big, supporting them in times of crisis, and helping them see their own limitless potential and reserves of resilience. 
Laura Ross does all of that and so much more as a school counselor at Five Forks Middle School in Lawrenceville, GA. Using the principles of restorative justice, she’s reduced the number of discipline referrals for students of color. She’s hosted presentations about body confidence for her fellow educators, helping them better understand the challenges so many young people are facing. And she’s leading the charge to make sure her school is an inclusive, welcoming place for LGBTQ students. I am so inspired by Laura and so thrilled that she is the 2020 @weareasca National School Counselor of the Year. Congratulations, Laura! #SCOY2020 @reachhigher

Over the last couple of months, I’ve loved seeing so many of you put pen to paper and embrace your own stories. That’s what the Becoming Journal is all about—giving ourselves the space to reflect on where we’ve been, where we are, and where we hope to go. As l sit here writing down some of my own thoughts in the new year, I’m curious to know: What are you reflecting on this year? #NewYearNewYou #IAmBecoming #WellnessWednesday

It's about that time when New Year's goals and resolutions get just a bit harder to stick to. To offer a little inspiration, I want to share my go-to 2020 #WorkoutPlaylist with all of you. These songs always seem to give me that extra boost to get through my toughest workouts. What's on your playlist? #IAmBecoming #SelfcareSunday

Thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes! With the girls off at college, this birthday brings with it a new perspective—a fresh breath—along my journey. I’m looking forward to devoting some quality time to my friends and to myself—and of course, to that husband of mine, too. I’m looking to make this year the best one yet—can’t wait to keep you all posted along the way.

I couldn’t be happier that Julia Reichert, Steven Bognar, and all of the incredible people behind #AmericanFactory have been nominated for the Best Documentary Oscar. What Julia and Steve capture on film is at times painful, at times exhilarating, but always thoughtful and always real—exactly the kind of story Barack and I wanted to lift up with Higher Ground Productions. I hope you’ll see for yourself by checking it out on @Netflix.

play_circle_filled The first year of college is exciting, but also a little nerve-racking. As a first-generation college student myself, I know how intimidating it can be to try to navigate through a new place and make new friends, all while trying to figure out who you are and who you want to be. That's why I'm so excited that @reachhigher is teaming up with @attndotcom to share the stories of four first-year college students: Robert, Linette, Regan, and Haseeb. Can't wait for you all to meet them and learn more about what taking that leap really feels like, day in and day out. Stay tuned!
