It’s no surprise that, like most people, First Lady Michelle Obama holds quality education to a very high standard, as she has already done a lot to promote it. In fact, in the past, Mrs. Obama has started initiatives and websites—such as the Reach Higher Campaign, HerCampus.com and Let Girls Learn— inspiring every student in America to pursue quality education and encouraging others to help.

Recently, FLOTUS has launched yet another extension of her Reach Higher Campaign. Mrs. Obama has unveiled a brand new website, which aims to encourage young students to continue their education after high school.

FLOTUS’ new campaign, Better Make Room (BetterMakeRoom.org) allows teens of Generation Z (individuals between the ages of 14 and 19) to swap stories and information about post-secondary education. Impressively, the initiative has already been backed by  more than 20 businesses, media groups and non-profit organizations, such as Mashable, Vine, American Eagle Outfitters, CW TV and more.

Michelle Obama describes her new website as “a space where young people can engage with each other, where they can inspire each other to complete their education beyond high school.”

What are your thoughts on FLOTUS’ latest campaign?
