Michelle Obama continues to show her love and support for the development of the youth in our country by attending the recent, Beating The Odds Summit. Partnering up with executives from Spotify, including Troy Carter, VP of Creator Services, and Danielle Lee, VP of Partner Solutions, Mrs. Obama gave an important address to the students of Washington, D.C.’s Dunbar High School.
Topics such as overcoming obstacles and learned lessons were shared by the powerful individuals to their student counterparts. 35 high school students spent a day long trip with the former First Lady as she inspired the college-bound students to consider majors or careers in the tech industry. College transition workshops, a panel where Spotify execs discussed the important role music plays, as well as a performance by R&B artist Kevin Ross all happened. The students definitely won the day by having the former First Lady invest in their future.
I don’t know about you, but I miss Michelle.
