Yes, you read that correctly—First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama teamed up with Saturday Night Live’s Jay Pharoah to launch a hip hop video, which encourages teenagers to go to college! If there weren’t already enough reasons for the world to admire Michelle Obama—from her ‘Let Girls Learn’ initiative, to advocating good health, to becoming the ultimate spokesperson for pursuing a good education—FLOTUS has given us all one more.

The hip hop video, which released Thursday, was created by CollegeHumor and is part of Michelle Obama’s “Better Make Room” education initiative. The initiative is meant to encourage teens to “take the next step” and “get a better education, have a better career, imagine a better future and live a better life.” “Better Make Room” started in October and mainly targets 14 to 19 year old students.

In the music video, FLOTUS raps about the benefits of higher education and her own experiences, saying “South Side Chicago, we all know we had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow, and everyone could really make their dream true.”
