Melania Trump was glowing on Monday afternoon, as she excitedly welcomed a group of middle school students to the White House.
The first lady, known for her compassion for children, was joined by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos at the event, which was held in the Blue Room.
‘I’m very excited that you’re here today with me, and thank you in advance for sharing your stories and your thoughts about your struggles and challenges,’ she told the group when she arrived.
The Blue Room of the White House had been set up like a classroom. Mrs. Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos asked a group of 13 middle school students to write on a board how they were feeling.
Toward the end, one student who had just written that he feels “energized,” accidentally knocked a drinking glass off a table. He froze, but the first lady put a comforting hand on his back.
“No problem,” she said. “Don’t worry, it’s just a water, okay?”
Mrs. Trump said she had gathered the children at the White House to hear about their thoughts and challenges, to “help children everywhere do their best.”
She began the session by writing on the board her own feelings: “Excited.”
The children wrote that they felt, “respected,” ”grateful” and “nervous.”
The White House said children were ages 10 to 13. First Lady Melania Trumps’ son, Barron, is 12.
