Michelle Obama spoke of  the “transformative power of the arts” this week  as she was brought in to give out humanities awards to various community programs that reach out to underserved youth.  The first lady acknowledged programs that help underserved kids by  using music, dance, poetry, theater, history, digital arts and other forms of expression for young people to help with their development. The ceremony was held at the White House, and Mrs. Obama thanked those in attendance. “You are pushing and inspiring our kids. You’re revealing their boundless promise and teaching them to believe in themselves,” she said. One little girl, Starr Arroyo, said that the programs have changed her life. “It helps me and teaches me that I can speak my mind and no matter what, if I have a point, I’ll make sure to express it because people want to listen to it,” she said in an interview. The 2012 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards are hosted by the President’s Committee on the Arts.  Over 350 groups were nominated to receive the awards.
