Good morning. I'm Noel King.

UNIDENTIFIED PERSON: Hello, Mrs. Obama.
KING: This is a Zoom call between schoolgirls and the former first lady Michelle Obama. As first lady, Obama visited two all-girls schools in the U.K. And when she left the White House, they kept in touch. Even though it wasn't in person, this meeting was still a success.
(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)
MICHELLE OBAMA: You all give me hope because listening to how resilient and determined you've been, that's what I see everywhere I go around the world.
KING: It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
