When First Lady Michelle Obama visited Capital City Public Charter School last month, she met Gerson Quinteros, a graduate of Capital City who now attends the University of the District Columbia. Gerson told Mrs. Obama that when he came to the United States from El Salvador at nine years old, he didn’t know English and was often bullied. But when he arrived at Capital City, he was welcomed with open arms, treated the same as every other kid, and given the support and encouragement to blossom as a student.
“Let’s Move! is a comprehensive initiative, launched by the First Lady, Michelle Obama, dedicated to solving the problem of obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams. Sure, this is an ambitious goal. But with your help, we can do it.” – First Lady Michelle Obama
