Mrs. Obama stopped by while on her 'Becoming' book tour.
The young ladies were chock full of delight as they loaded up on advice and insight from one of the world's most famous people.
"One of the lessons that I hope you take away is there is no definition of who belongs," she said.
The young ladies listened intently as Mrs. Obama was peppered with questions, including academic achievement in the classroom.
"I want you guys to think about getting out of your own way and second-guessing yourself before you've even given yourself a chance to try," she said. "Preparation matters. You don't do these things because you've got a good gut feeling, you've got to know what you are talking about."
The dozen young women who participated received free tickets to the book tour extravaganza later that night at the Wells Fargo Center.
