In her post-White House life, Michelle Obama has made a habit lately of surprising people in entertaining ways.
The former first lady’s shock-and-awe behavior continued this week, when Obama surprised students from Browning High School students during their visit to the Sidwell Friends School — where Sasha Obama attends. A week-long cultural exchange program brought the Browning students to Washington, where they were doing a exchange centered around Native life back in their home state of Montana.
Obama was reportedly already on the prestigious school’s Washington campus for a meeting with her daughter’s counselor, when the head of school asked Michelle Obama if she would come meet the nine visiting students, to which she said yes.
“We were hurried out to the main campus house and there were secret service everywhere,” Amy Andreas, Browning librarian and Human Rights Club adviser Amy Andreas said. “Then boom, in walks Michelle.”
The students reportedly snapped some selfies with the former first lady, before the group sat around a table and listened to Obama discuss a world of privilege, and how to succeed despite a lack of resources.
“Mostly what I took away was to ask for things if you want them,” senior Dylan RunningCrane said to the Great Falls Tribune. “Kids on the reservation are never taught that. If you want something, you have to ask.”
The Browning High School visit to Washington also included tours of the city, a visit to the National Museum of the American Indian and a chat with Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) about Native issues.
