Presidential Flow: Wale Gives Students Advice On The Importance Of Education At The White House
Wale has collaborated with many of hip-hop’s elite, but the MMG lyricist entered a whole new ball game when he teamed up with Michelle Obama for her Reach Higher initiate.
As part of the First Lady’s 2015 Beating The Odds Summit, about 140 college-bound students attended the White House Thursday (July 23) where Wale, E! News Correspondent Terrence J and the First Lady encouraged students on the importance of pursuing a higher education.
Valedictorians, students from rural and urban communities and some even struggling with homelessness attended panels on adapting to a new environment, the college social scene and financial aid.
While many of the students were happy to meet Wale, his celebrity was trumped by a surprise visit from the President, who also drove home the importance of college.
Like anyone else, Wale was excited about meeting 44, and snapped a a very “we’re totally bro’s in my head” kind of photo. Peep
Either way. This is a great initiative to be a part of. Good looks, Wale.
