First Lady Michelle Obama is launching a mentoring program in which female White House senior staff impart educational, career development and life skills to young girls.
Explaining the program, the First Lady said…
"When we came to the White House, we thought 'wow, we've got the most powerful seat in the land to help be a bridge builder… So we started thinking of new ways to bring new kids in, to have their voices heard, to know that the President of the United States hears you and values you and cares about your growth and development."
And in nurturing that development, the program hopes to offer several life lessons and tutorials gleaned from this administration's rise to power and first year in office, including…
* It's not how well you do your job, it's how poorly the guy you're replacing did his
* Finding places to store your audacious, but unused, hope
* Compromising your dreams: It only hurts forever
