Reaching Out to the First Lady

November 3, 2009





Isis Initiative President Cheryl Hatch wrote this letter to First Lady Michelle Obama, telling her about the nonprofit's commitment to women's access to higher education worldwide.

Last month, I wrote to President Obama and asked him to consider donating a part of his $1.4 million award for the Nobel Peace Prize to Isis Initiative, Inc.

Then I realized I wanted to write to Mrs. Obama. She’s a woman. She’s a mother. And a daughter. She’s a strong advocate for education and the possibilities for change that a college degree can offer.

I believe in our mission to offer scholarships to young women overseas, who come from impoverished and challenging backgrounds and dare to dream of a better future for themselves and their families.

I wrote the First Lady and asked for her support. I have big dreams, too.
