A group of kids at Albritton Middle School asked first lady Melania Trump a handful of questions Monday during her trip with second lady Karen Pence to Fort Bragg, North Carolina. One was about whether she would serve again as first lady.

“I really appreciate your warm welcome. It’s nice to be here,” the first lady shared after she and the second lady received cheers and a standing ovation upon entering the room, per a pool report from the first lady’s office.

“We are working hard every day to keep America great,” FLOTUS explained after being asked about her and Karen’s duties in the White House.

“I think our husbands [President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence] are doing a fantastic job and I would support my husband if he would run again and yes, it’s a privilege, a great honor to serve,” the first lady explained to the kids.

At one point, one of the students asked FLOTUS if her life had changed since Trump won the election and how it was different than before.

“There is a lot of change,” Melania admitted. “You move from the city that you leave [love], and you taking care of different things that you took care of before.”

“But I would not change for anything,” she added. “I love what I do. And what will affect, I will always shine a light on children. And next generation. I’m here to spread positivity and confidence in being all of you, as you make [may] heard, I have initiative. Be Best.”

The first lady continued, “And I encourage all of you to be best in everything that you do, to challenge yourself to be true to yourself, and to have positive way in your life.” (RELATED: Tiffany Trump Stuns In Sleeveless Black Dress At WH Christmas Party)
