During the speech, Mrs Obama appreciated the people she had worked with over the past eight years at the White House. She also used the platform to tout her husband’s achievements as President of the United States.
She admonished young people listening to her at the East Room of the White House and those watching from across the United States to be hopeful and courageous. She called immigrates part of America’s old tradition and told them not to be afraid. She equally told people of all religions to hold on to their faiths.
