The First lady of the United States, Melania Trump thanked students in the US on Thursday for adapting to the new realities of life in the past few months.
She said, “These changes were not easy, but you have been so strong and I am proud of the examples you have become”. She acknowledged students who have missed seeing friends during in-person classes, sports, prom and graduation, assuring them that “your determination to get through this will define your generation for years to come.”
“So, thank you for helping your families, your friends, your communities and our country to stay healthy and safe during these unusual times,” she added. “Thank you for keeping up your studies and learning in new ways.” The first lady urged students to read, play sports, help around the house, stay in contact with loved ones “and make sure you are being your best self”.
