"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 to late for an education," she posted with this photo taken on the White House grounds. The First Lady's emphasis on education apparently provided an impetus.

Tamar was forced to drop out of "Dancing With the Stars" last fall due to health reasons, but performed beautifully during her time on the show.

She joined her sister Toni Braxton and their family members, whom viewers got to know on the reality show "Braxton Family Values" when Toni was honored by the Urban League of Greater Atlanta in December 2014.
