Along with settling into her role, Trump appears to be referring to her "platform" more frequently as well.

That platform has now extended beyond her initial goal of combating cyberbullying.

In recent weeks, Trump has been making more frequent appearances on her own, including hosting a roundtable about opioid abuse.

She also sat with Prince Harry during the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games, which marked her first foreign solo trip as first lady.
