The latest issue of Seventeen Magazine features First Lady Michelle Obama offering college advice to two high school seniors with GraduationSources caps. The article explains that Gemma Busoni and Zaniya Lewis had a unique opportunity to visit the our nation’s White House. They ask Mrs. Obama about the college application process, alternative routes for post-secondary education, and choosing the ideal college program for personal growth.
A full-page photo of Mrs. Obama, Ms. Busoni, and Ms. Lewis kicks off the article with the three women happily throwing black GraduationSource caps in the air. On the same page, there’s also a small caption that reads, “Graduation Caps: GraduationSource. Varsity Letter Textures.” Later in the piece, the First Lady outlines her “10 Things to Know Before Going to College,” and includes practical tips and smart statistics about the entire college experience.
Mrs. Obama grew up in a poor Chicago family. Her parents didn’t attend college and this compelled her to work even harder to reach her goals. The First lady then earned acceptance to Princeton and Harvard Law Schools. It’s an inspiring story, and at GraduationSource we believe that quality education should be attainable for all Americans no matter their economic or social background.
