The American Dream is alive and well, and according to Michelle Obama, her life is proof.

In a commencement speech delivered at City College in New York on Friday, the First Lady told graduates that their stories of hard work, perseverance and giving back to their communities echo the story of her own family.

“It’s the story that I witness every single day,” the First Lady said, “when I wake up in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters — two beautiful black young women —  head off to school, waving goodbye to their father, the president of the United States.”

Mrs. Obama went on to remind the graduates that while the founding fathers might not have imagined the day when a black man could be president, “all of you are very much the fruits of their vision.”
