I heard the @ChicagoSky and @ChicagoBulls were visiting the South Side YMCA, so I decided to drop by, too. It’s always fun to meet young people who are learning to love the game.

Michelle and I are in Chicago this week to talk to folks who are working on some of the city’s toughest challenges. Yesterday, I met with leaders from across Chicago, heard their stories, and shared ideas. Change is never easy, but we want them to know they’re not alone.

Growing up on the South Side made me who I am today, and I was thrilled to meet with some wonderful young women from Chicago to talk about our work with the @GirlsAlliance.

I see myself in these girls—and I'm so proud of each of them.
