Now imagine that when you walk into the meeting, you see Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama waiting to hang out with you. That’s a pretty great surprise.
According to the West Orange School District, Obama was going to appear on a taping of “SuperSoul conversation” with Oprah Winfrey when Oprah BFF Gayle King suggested inviting some high school students in and then surprising them with the big shots in the room. So, O magazine invited 30 female high school leaders from various New York and New Jersey nonprofit organizations to come talk politics with them.

Regardless of your politics, or what you think of either the former first lady or the media mogul, you gotta admit, for a group of enterprising young high school women, this was probably one of the most exciting and memorable moments of their lives.
