Wow! Kudos to Secretary Clinton for reaching the agreement ... and to Michelle for being asked to serve as advisor.
Oooh Michelle! I don't know where you find the time to manage all these super cool, innovative projects but rock on with your bad self!
Michelle! So wonderful to see her talent and passions channeled into such meaningful activities.
WOW! I'm so impressive with Michelle's achievement!
And for those of you who don't bother with the Trash Can forum , here's the link to another Kwan news item from last month: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=78246
Michelle continues to impress me in her post-competitive skating career. Congrats and well done!
Michelle is such an inspiration
Michelle is probably finishing her 2 year Tufts degree soon. Wonder if she will go for a doctorate?
Bravo, Michelle, you continue to inspire. Thanks for the update, kwanette!!!
Yeahh Michelle!! Go Asian sister!
I actually imagined something like this will happen when she turned up in that golden dress at the state dinner and made Hu JinTao laughed, when she informs him at age 30, she was too old to compete.
You tell this to the big guy, you'll get a good job! I am hoping for many exciting opportunities for Michelle in assisting US - China relations and beyond.
Is it bad of me to say I wish Goldman Sachs and Wal-Mart were not associated with the women's entrepenuer projects though?
Lol. But they can really do with the rep and they sure got the money. Wal-mart practically live off China anyway, only fair. Who else going to fund it? US government? I don't think so! Goldman has an annual fund for their 'diversity' programs so it will fit nicely into it. China on the other hand don't really need this program, they just need to send their women to live in Shanghai for a few years, then in NY for a few years, they'd be total sharks.
I wonder if it is the first time the 2 org. get associated with each other, what an odd pair.
I'm so pleased for her.
Michelle has my continuing respect and admiration.
YAY Kween!! She truly is an amazing woman. I have a lot of respect for her.
She is due to graduate in a few weeks, right? Has she announced anything about her plans post-graduation other than this (which seems to be a volunteer position)?
Long live the Kween!
What a wonderful woman she's grown into being. Skating opened the door, but she walked through it and has used the opportunity offered to her so well.
Kwan rocks on!
I expect that this will be the case for many years to come.
I agree with all of the above. Congrats to the Kween!!!
Thanks for posting these news updates and links kwanette and Sylvia. The Kween is so kwantastic. A great role model ... her legendary programs continue to inspire, and her off-ice achievements and pushing forward to be the best she can be truly shows her drive and character, not unlike the way she approached her young life on the ice.
What an inspiration!
The Kween abides...and continues to grow. How impressive and inspiring.
What an outstanding personnality !
Kwan reaches top positions in everything she does, how can a career be better than that ?
President ? LOL Maybe... who knows...
Hopefully a cure for the common cold will be next...
Yeah, she's probably still pissed she was so sick at 1999 Worlds!
Michelle, what can I say?! You are a skating superstar and a superstar in life.
What a woman !!!!
She really has set a "golden" standard. You go girl!
I want to be positive and supportive. And maybe I don't have the right frame of mind. But I'm a little worried that none of Michelle's recent endevours involve an actual paycheck.
Is she asking you to support her? Pay for her university bills? Are you really Danny Kwan?
I think that it is entirely possible that many of these opportunities she has had are very much helped by the fact that she might have a little bit of a nest egg from her skating career, and doesn't have to worry so much like many of the rest of us about a periodic paycheck in order to be involved in those efforts.
Just think of these activities as very impressive extracurricular activities for a full time graduate student.
He's worried about getting that $20 back he loaned her for gas money last year.
I'm sure that Michelle/her advisors have taken care of her earnings over the years.
The assignments/opportunities that she has undertaken while completing her education will only add to her readiness/qualifications for whatever she does in the future.
Some will "snipe" at her accomplishments, no matter what they are...sigh!
Umm, didn't she tour for 10 years on COI, most of it with top billing, while most were in Jr high, high school, and college, meaning she can probably afford to take a few years off from earning a pay check to go to SCHOOL. Furthermore, I don't know if her involvement with the State Department is unpaid and/or she is not receiving some form of educational stipends or grants as part of her service.
