Michelle Williams Goes Back To School!
The R&B/gospel singer heads back to her old school to encourage the youth...
Destiny's Childfame has recently headed back to class to mentor young girls at her former school in her native Rockford, Illinois.
The 29-year-old R&B/gospel singer returned to West Middle School when she met students and encouraged them to follow their dreams and focus on their goals.
She told them: "I sat where you sat, I walked the same halls that you did... you can do what I do. You can do it better, I’m sure. It’s about focusing and having goals, and I knew at a young age that I would be successful. I didn’t know to what capacity, but I knew there were certain things I could not do.
"There were certain mistakes that (could have) cost me my life, so I tried not to do those things. Create that thing around you. Just because you leave somewhere doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to be better. Create that fire that you want. Your focus needs to be on your education.”
Michelle Williams recently appeared on Broadway in hit musical, Chicago.
