High School For Health Professions & Human Services

Khalea Blakey attends College Signing Day with Michelle Obama!

First and foremost, I would like to thank Fatimah, Shari, Mr. Gentile and Ms. Aguilar for giving me the opportunity to share the same space with one of my role models. Mrs. Obama's speech resonated so well with everything I am going through personally and she gave me a "kick" of motivation to finish the rest of high school and go on to college. She also influenced me to major in Policy Studies so one day I can have a career in law practice. I am so thankful for this experience. Thank you again to everyone who made it possible for me to live out my dreams.
