Opinion: The First Lady's trip to Africa is an integral part of her Be Best campaign
First Lady Melania Trump has embarked on her first international solo trip. The First Lady is in Africa visiting Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt.
Mrs. Trump has worked with the United States Agency for International Development, USAID, to use this trip in order to support programs that focus on early childhood education and promote overall welfare for children in Africa.
This trip includes visits to USAID initiatives, hospitals as well as discussions on child nutrition and HIV prevention.
The emphasis on children goes hand in hand with the First Lady’s "Be Best," campaign which is focused on three important issues for modern families: promoting the overall well-being of children, combatting cyber bullying, and stopping opioid abuse.
It is the personal diplomacy that is typically exhibited by First Ladies on trips such as these that fosters cooperation and establishes a true connection between countries.
The First Lady’s "Be Best," campaign allows for the perfect opportunity to shine a light on very important issues, and to inspire our world to set aside differences and come together in order to achieve a common goal of helping children throughout the globe.
Here’s the Bottom Line: Mrs. Trump is a great ambassador and representative of the Trump administration and our country as a whole.
This trip to Africa by the First Lady will hopefully go a long way toward helping children there lead better and healthier lives while also helping our country establish closer ties with our allies.
