Former first lady Michelle Obama is set to launch an Instagram TV series that will follow four college students, sharing the highs and lows of their first year experiences, in order to inspire other new students, she announced Tuesday.
The six-episode series, titled “A Year of Firsts,” will premiere later this month and conclude in June. It’s being produced in partnership with media company ATTN:.
The new series is a part of Obama’s Reach Higher initiative on higher education that she spearheaded as first lady.
“By sharing their stories, they’re helping others see that the ups and downs of the first year of college are something everyone goes through – and they’re creating a supportive community for others facing similar challenges,” Obama, who is a first-generation college student, said in a statement.
