This week, the First Lady travelled to Qatar and Jordan to speak at the WISE Summit and promote her new education initiative, Let Girls Learn. The First Lady gave an impassioned speech calling for an end to 'outdated laws and traditions' that prevent millions of girls across the globe from completing their education. During her trip, Mrs Obama also met with troops at Al Udeid Air Base.

Fancy becoming a White House Fellow? You've got until January 12th to apply. White House Fellows are extraordinary Americans, selected by the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships, who have demonstrated remarkable achievement early in their careers and have a commitment to service. During their year in Washington, Fellows are placed as advisors to senior White House staff, Cabinet Secretaries, and other top-ranking government officials. They also participate in a robust education program that includes conversations with a range of leaders and skill-based leadership development sessions. It is an extraordinary year where Fellows are pushed outside their comfort zones and immersed in the study of leadership.
