Barack Obama’s Daughters And Parents

Being linked in anyway to the first family of the United States of America is bound to get you all sorts of publicity, we can say that the group of people we are about to talk about held up their own quite well. Barack Obama’s daughters will definitely not go down as the worst first children in history, and following their historical exit from the white house, this article has been a long time pending.

His parents on the other hand were sadly not given the opportunity to witness his rise to power, but we still want to know about them. In a way this is a journey into the past and future. Today, we begin at the future with the topic of Barack Obama’s daughters.

Barack Obama’s Daughters

It’s no easy feat being the daughter of the most powerful man in the world, and we bet Malia and Sasha can tell you this. For eight years, the girls have grown up in the public eye while still trying to have personal lives… as confusing as that sounds, we can all agree that they succeeded to an extent.

She was just ten years old when her father entered office, what a thrill and a scare it must have been for young Malia at the time. Since then, the world has watched her blossom into the young woman she is today, through the lens of the media.

Having her mother, the very lovable Michelle Obama, as a role model, Malia certainly has very big shoes to fill in future ( no pressure there). We are after all meant to surpass our parents in terms of success, aren’t we? Well, this president’s daughter is already on the right path.

She recently just graduated from Sidwell Friends School and got admission into the prestigious Harvard University, where she will become the latest in a long line of presidential children to receive her tertiary education at the institution. Her parent’s have tried to provide her sister and her with some semblance of a normal childhood.

Like most teens, she learnt how to drive… but she was taught by the secret service, now that doesn’t happen to most teens. She shared a pet with her sister and they had family dinner together every night. Despite all these things you still cannot mistake theirs for a normal family.

Malia and Sasha were named two of The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014, they aren’t really on social media or ‘out there’ per say, but they have carved a niche for themselves as far as teenagers and the world are concerned. Nevertheless, Malia is still daddy’s little girl and the former president himself has referred to her as  “one of my best friends”.

Sasha on the other hand has people wondering what the next step is for her. According to Yahoo News, the youngest of the family, Sasha, has avoided scrutiny compared to reports of what her sister and parents will do, begging the question: What’s next for Sasha?

Well here is the answer in plain words, being that she is still a freshman at Sidwell Friends School, the former first family will be remaining in Washington till she completes her secondary school education. Here is what Obama himself said pertaining to that at a restaurant while visiting Milwaukee voters in March.

‘ We’re going to have to stay a couple of years so Sasha can finish school, transferring someone in the middle of high school. Tough.’ Sasha recently got a lot of attention when her absence was noticed at her dad’s farewell speech. The twittersphere was kind of crazy for a moment, people were suggesting all sorts of reasons.

Sasha Obama couldn’t make it because she’s at home planning her 2040 campaign, @taylortrudon tweeted. @CelineBesman, took a more humorous route saying, Sasha Obama:”Can I get Tuesday night off, my dad is giving his farewell speech” Manager:”Only if you can find someone to cover your shift.’
