VIDEO: Michelle Obama, Julia Roberts urge Vietnam girls to stay in school – WATCH

Former US first lady Michelle Obama and Hollywood A-lister Julia Roberts toured a high school in rural Vietnam yesterday, urging a classroom of teenage girls to stay focused on their education to transform their lives.

The promotion of girls’ schooling has been the cornerstone of Obama’s charitable work since her husband Barack Obama left office in 2017 after two terms as US president. “When you educate a girl you give them power and a voice and an opportunity to improve their lives and the lives of their family and the lives of their community,” Obama said at Can Giuoc high school in southern Long An province in the Mekong Delta.
