First Lady Michelle Obama: Meet Troy

"Hello, all -- Today, I met a young man named Troy. Troy comes from New Orleans, where his family lived through the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. He couldn't read until he was twelve, and would regularly cut school because the other students would tease him.
