Michelle ObamaThe First Lady gave some smart advice to an audience of 1,000 girls at Glamour Magazine's "The Power of an Educated Girl," a panel held at the Appollo Theater in Harlem in September.

"Compete with the boys. Beat the boys. There is no boy, at this age, that is cute enough or interesting enough to stop you from getting your education."

She continued, "It's my passion and my mission that every girl on the planet has the same opportunity that I have and my daughters have.

Michelle Obama was joined by other girls' education advocates to promote two international initiatives: Glamour's The Girl Project and the White House's Let Girls Learn. Read more.
