Former first lady Michelle Obama declared herself America’s “forever first lady” during a college event on Wednesday.

According to the Washington Examiner, Obama made a public appearance at Temple University in Philadelphia, Penn. to talk to high school seniors preparing to go to college. The former first lady apparently made the “forever first lady” comment in an attempt to tell the students that they can accomplish anything.

“If I can be standing here as your forever first lady then you can do anything you put your mind to,” Obama said. (RELATED: Michelle Obama Says Female Trump Voters Only Voted For Him Because They Were Told To)

The audience applauded Obama, who also once said that the first time she was proud of her country was during the 2008 election of her husband, Barack Obama. She later claimed that her source of pride was in seeing so many people turn out to vote.
