During her trip, Michelle Obama, accompanied by her mother, Mrs. Marian Robinson, and her daughters Malia and Sasha Obama, will visit several high schools and universities to talk to students about culture and education.

“My  husband  and  I  take  the  time  to  visit  countries  like  China  because  we  know  that  today,  more  than  ever  before,  our  lives  here  in  America  are  connected  to  the  lives  of  people  around  the  world,” said the first Lady in her blog.

Michelle Obama have been over the past five years to a significant number of countries across Africa, Asia, Europe and South America, including Mexico, India, South Africa and Ireland, where she focused on the importance of education.

“No  matter  what  country  we  live  in,  we’re  all  facing  so  many  of  the  same  challenges   from  ensuring  that  students  get  a  good  education;  to  fighting  poverty,  hunger  and  disease;  to  addressing  threats  to  our  planet  like  climate  change,” said the First Lady.

“That’s  why  everywhere  I  go,  whether  it’s  here  in  the  U.S.  or  abroad,  I  meet  with  young  people  to  hear  about  your  challenges,  hopes  and  dreams  and  that’s  what  I’ll  be  doing  in China as well.”

Besides visiting a high school in Chengdu and a university and a high school in Beijing, Michelle Obama will stop at some important historical and cultural sites in China, sharing with the American students her stories from China and people she met there.

The First Lady is encouraging students and classrooms across the U.S. to follow her trip by signing up for updates throughout the visit. View the First Lady’s message to students here, the White House reports.

“I’ll  be  posting  a  daily  travel  blog,  complete  with  videos  and  photos,  and  I’ll  be  taking and  answering questions  from  kids  across  America  as I go,” said Michelle Obama.
