This brought a smile to my face—as do my memories of seeing @RoomtoRead’s work in Vietnam last year with the @GirlsAlliance. I'm so inspired by these girls and Room to Read’s efforts to ensure that the pandemic doesn’t derail their dreams of getting an education. ❤️

#TBT to last December when the @ObamaFoundation & @girlsalliance visited our @RoomtoRead Vietnam Girls' Education Program. 1 year later, we're still so grateful for this partnership & a couple of students wanted to send some kind words to @MichelleObama:

We ❤️ this message that the girls of @RoomtoRead shared to mark the one year anniversary of our visit with @MichelleObama to their program in Vietnam. Watch it here:

#MissingCode #CSEdWeek
