On a forthcoming journey to the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe, Jill Biden will support youth and female empowerment and attend Jordan’s royal wedding.
The first lady was slated to leave on a six-day tour to Egypt, Morocco, and Portugal on Wednesday. The Associated Press was originally informed by her office of some information.
As first lady, Biden will make her first trip to the Middle East. In February, she visited Namibia and Kenya.
The first lady, according to Vanessa Valdivia, her spokesperson, “believes that supporting youth across the globe is critical to our common future, with education, health, and empowerment at the heart of it.”
“The first lady will continue to build on her work to empower young people with her visit to the Middle East and North Africa,” Valdivia said in an email. “We commit to strengthening our partnerships and advancing our shared priorities in the region.”
Jill Biden will interact with women and young people in Egypt and Morocco while highlighting American investments that promote educational initiatives and attempts to broaden access to the labor market.
