Michelle Obama’s TED Talk is about education and how with it we can achieve anything
we want no matter where we come from or what our background is. Michelle Obama teaches us with hard work and a good education we can have the brightest of futures and with that education we will have new doors open for us that weren’t there before. Her TED Talk relates perfectly to The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian because Arnold leaves his rez to go to Reardan, an all-white people school, to get a better education and brighten his future. Arnold realizes that if he stays on the rez and attends his current school he will have less of a chance at a successful career then if he takes that step to go to Reardan and further his education. We believe our TED Talk is worth watching because it shows us all the importance of staying in school and working hard. At this age, just starting high school, Michelle Obama’s message couldn’t have at a better time because we are getting ready at this moment to create our futures. With Michelle’s advice and wisdom, we will be able to see those new doors open and brighten our own futures!
