On this day last year, First Lady Michelle Obama embarked on a week-long official visit to South Africa and Botswana to promote youth leadership, education, health, and wellness, particularly among women and girls.
On her trip, she delivered the keynote address at the Young African Women Leaders Forum, met with former South African President Nelson Mandela, did pushups with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and participated in two service projects at local community centers, among many other activites.
