Tamar Braxton Says Michelle Obama Inspired Her

The talk show host really loved interviewing FLOTUS.

Tamar Braxton’s interview with Michelle Obama on Tuesday’s episode of “The Real” has prompted the reality star to make an inspiring decision.  

After the interview, during which the First Lady promoted her “Better Make Room” education initiative, Braxton wrote in an Instagram post that the White House visit has inspired her to further her education.

“I'm going back to school y'all,” she wrote. “The one thing I learned on this trip is even if you are already successful… it's never too late for an education. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Encourage yourself and one another to be the best you.”

Braxton has previously spoken out about why empowering young women is so important to her both on her show and in a 2011 interview with Black Enterprise.

“One of my other passions is talking to and empowering young women by teaching them about self-esteem, the importance of education and choosing a [career path] for their lives,” she told the magazine. “I really enjoy doing things like that so right now speaking and empowering young women and helping them to be confident is something I’ve found I truly love and want to do more of in the future.”
