NEW YORK—First Lady Melania Trump has rung the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Sept. 23.

The first lady was at the exchange to highlight her youth initiative, an anti-cyberbullying campaign called ‘Be Best.’

The exchange’s first female president, Stacey Cunningham, escorted Mrs. Trump and discussed the exchange’s history with her.
