We think it’s fair to say ninth-grade student Kiara Molina had a great day Thursday.
Not only did the teen introduce President Barack Obama before one of his major speeches, but the president called it “one of the best introductions I’ve ever had.”
Molina, who currently attends Harlem Children’s Zone Promise Academy Charter School in New York spoke about her positive experiences at the school, which also provides services to families in the Harlem community. After her introduction, Obama went on to speak about his administration’s plan to invest in five economically disadvantaged “promise zones” throughout the country.
Obama said he was “proud of Kiara for that introduction and for sharing her story. Just so poised.”
“I know your mom is proud. I know she is. She should be,” the president said to the teen.
