Many celebrities such as Tracee Ellis Ross, Carmelo Anthony, Common, Melissa McCarthy, and Jidenna also joined the First Lady.

Over 4,000 students showed up to the event that is a part of the #ReachHigher initiative. With this initiative, the First Lady is hoping the United States can get back to being the nation with the most college graduates.

Along with posting pictures on her own Instagram, she also took over MTV’s Instagram as well.
