‘This gets an A+ in my book’: Michelle Obama Applauds 3rd Grader’s Project On Her

‘This gets an A+ in my book’: Michelle Obama says third grader’s project on former First Lady made her day


It’s not every day you get a shout out from your idol, it’s even more special when that idol just happens to be the former First Lady.

Proud mama: Audrey Dow posted a picture of her 9-year-old in front of her school project — which was a fold-out tribute to Michelle Obama showing various stages of her life

Third grader Alexandra Dow got a big thumbs up and an A+ from Michelle Obamathis week after her mom tweeted out a picture of her class project, which was inspired by the former First Lady.


Three days later, Michelle tweeted back saying: 'This just made my day. I may not be a 3rd grade teacher, but this gets an A+ in my book!'

She wrote: ‘Today my 9 year old was @MichelleObama for her 3rd grade Open House project. She was inspired by her work to make sure more kids go to college & #ReachHigher.

‘She loves that Mrs. Obama is brown & has hair like hers #ISawMyself.’

Alexandra even wore a matching blue dress and emulated the 54-year-old’s pose in one of the pictures, taken at the Democratic National Convention in July 2016.
