Watch Michelle Obama Deliver Final Speech as First Lady

Michelle Obama is set to deliver her final speech as First Lady of the United States on Friday. Obama will deliver closing remarks at the 2017 School Counselor of the Year event at the White House, continuing a tradition first established by the First Lady back in 2015. The speech comes exactly two weeks before Trump's scheduled inauguration.

President Obama's own farewell speech will take place Jan. 10 in Chicago. "I'm just beginning to write my remarks," Obama said when announcing the event last week. "But I'm thinking about them as a chance to say thank you for this amazing journey, to celebrate the ways you've changed this country for the better these past eight years, and to offer some thoughts on where we all go from here."
