WASHINGTON, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Tamar Braxton will return to school following an inspirational meeting with Michelle Obama.

The 38-year-old television personality announced she will continue her education after interviewing the 52-year-old first lady Tuesday in Washington, D.C. Braxton celebrated the news by sharing a photo of herself with husband Vincent Herbert outside the White House.

"What an AMAZING day. God is excellent and not in a zillion years did I think I would be at the White House to interview one of my NEW favorite people @michelleobama," she wrote.

"I'm going back to school y'all. The one thing I learned on this trip is even if you are already successful it's NEVER too late for an education. You can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you. Encourage yourself and one another to be the BEST you," she added.

Braxton interviewed Obama for her talk show The Real, which she co-hosts with Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Loni Love. Obama is one of four first ladies to have a graduate degree, and discussed the importance of education on Wednesday's episode.

"I know that I wouldn't be where I am today without having a foundation in education," Obama said. "Education is the key to freedom these days ... You are more than capable of going to college, of being successful and going on to do whatever you want in life."

Braxton and her sisters, Traci, Trina, Towanda and Toni Braxton, rose to fame as the musical group The Braxtons, and later pursued solo careers. The siblings star on the WE reality series Braxton Family Values, which will return for a fifth season this year.
