Favorite Moments of 2015
“In September, I became the first sitting president to visit north of the Arctic Circle, but before I made it up there, I checked out a glacier and trekked through the Alaskan wilderness with Bear Grylls,” Barack tells PEOPLE. “Now, based on what I know of Bear, this could have gone a number of ways – and I did end up eating a salmon that had been gnawed on by an actual bear – but we had a great time.”
“The landscape was breathtaking, and so were the very real effects of climate change, which become hard to ignore when the ice is melting into your hands,” he adds. “I thought it was important to talk about protecting the only planet we have, but I never thought I’d be Running Wild with Bear Grylls.”
As for Michelle, “spending time with young people is always a highlight for me – in schools, on military bases, in the White House – anywhere, really.”
“I once spent some time with girls at a school in Cambodia, and one of them read me a poem she had written about Let Girls Learn, our initiative to help girls worldwide go to school,” the First Lady shares. “It was beautiful – I was trying so hard not to cry!”
