Michelle Obama may not be in the White House anymore, but she's still out inspiring young women.

The former First Lady paid a surprise visit to a classroom of female students at Cardozo Education Campus, in honor of International Women's Day, where she engaged in a roundtable discussion with young people of various perspectives, including some recent immigrants from Africa and Latin America.

"Celebrating the beauty and diversity of our country on this #InternationalWomensDay with some of the many fierce and promising girls here at DC's Cardozo Education Campus," the 53-year-old lawyer shared on Instagram. "I loved visiting this school because it tells the American story in so many ways."

"Three years ago, Cardozo established its International Academy with only 150 students, but today it boasts nearly 400 who are thriving in and out of the classroom," she added. "By embracing young immigrants and their diverse cultures and contributions, Cardozo is a model for our entire country. The girls I met with today are ready to take on the world. We’ve just got to make sure that the world is ready for them."
