First Lady Melania Trump is headed to the Seattle area on Monday to visit with an undisclosed tech company as part of her Be Best initiative, according to a statement from the White House.

The visit is part of a three-state tour, which will also take the first lady to Tulsa, Okla., and Las Vegas.

After visiting an elementary school in Tulsa on Monday, Trump “will then visit a tech company near Seattle, Washington to receive a tour and briefing on some of their programs and applications meant to teach children online safety, as well as technology innovations meant to help children with disabilities.”

The statement doesn’t mention the company by name, but the reference to “near Seattle” could indicate Microsoft, which is located just east of Seattle in Redmond. The company also has initiatives in the areas of online safety and is working on a number of efforts related to helping those with disabilities.

“Whether it is social media and technology or drug and alcohol abuse, children in our country and around the world are faced with many challenges,” Trump said in the statement. “Through Be Best I will continue to shine a spotlight on the well-being programs that provide children the tools and skills required for emotional, social and physical well-being and promote successful organizations, programs, and people who are helping children overcome some of the issues they face while growing up in the modern world.”

Be Best is described as an awareness program focused on the well-being of children.

Here is more from Trump when she was discussing the issue of cyber bullying with tech leaders last year, including Microsoft executive Julie Brill.
