We don't blame you. Figuring out how to talk to that cute boy in class can sometimes seem like a major concern. But after watching the First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama drop the mic in this panel, you might want to rethink your #girlproblems.

So the next time you think of ditching your study session for a date, remember these very wise words from FLOTUS. "If I had worried about who liked me and who thought I was cute when I was your age, I wouldn't be married to the President of the United States today." *drop the mic* 

The panel called The Power of the Educated Girl was organized by Glamour magazine to give focus on the importance of girls' education. Joining her on the panel were actress and social activists Charlize Theron and Sophia Bush, former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, and Plan International girl advocate Nurfahada Jailaniwho happens to be Pinay! Learn more about the First Lady's cause by visiting #62MillionGirls and find out how you can participate. Plus, watch the full stream of the panel on Glamour.
