In a sketch released on Thursday by comedy website College Humor, First Lady Michelle Obama is shown for a brief time recreating her resume and helping a college student out with her FAFSA.
In the video, a college aged girl appears on a game show hosted by Chris Harrison (yes, that Chris Harrison) that promises students free money for college. The twist? Harrison is really just asking the girl to answer the questions on the FAFSA. The girl struggles with the first question—which asks for her name. This results in her calling FLOTUS as a lifeline, who easily helps the girl stay in the competition.
Before talking to the girl, we see Michelle fixing her resume. Under the skills section, she changes "Public Speaker" to "Best Public Speaker." After the call, she comments, "Just a few months left... Oh! Gotta change my address!"
First Lady Michelle Obama has always advocated for everyone—especially women—to have the opportunity to be educated. In the video, which isn't her first for College Humor, she and Harrison help promote the FAFSA and try to encourage students to fill it out. The video repeatedly notes how easy it is to do, and that upon completion students can "win free money for college." While many students feel that the FAFSA takes a lot of time and can be difficult to figure out, this video is a good reminder that there are tons of resources available to college students to help fill it out with ease! Don't let fear or intimidation stop you from getting the money you need for your education.
