Yesterday Thursday June 10th, Sasha Obama the youngest daughter of Former President Barack and forever First Lady Michelle Obama turned 20 and the proud parents couldn’t help but take to social media to pay heartwarming tributes to their baby girl to commemorate the milestone.
“Happy birthday, Sasha!” Barack Obama wrote on social media, captioning a throwback photo with her. “You’ve grown so much, and it’s been a joy to watch you become the person we always hoped you’d be. Your mom and I can’t wait to see where life takes you next.”
“Happy birthday to my darling Sasha!” the former First Lady wrote via Instagram. “I am so grateful for every laugh we’ve shared—and everything you’ve taught me over the years. You’ll always be my little girl, but I couldn’t be prouder of the woman you are becoming. Love you so much! ???
Michelle in a recent chat shared mixed feelings on watching her daughters grow up, particularly Malia achieving independence post-graduation from Harvard University and being out there in society;
“I don’t want to have to worry about [Malia] entering a world where she has to worry about how people would treat her because of the color of her skin,” she said. “I am excited, but I’d like to be more excited,” Obama added, “to know that as she goes out and gets her first apartment and rides the subway somewhere, that they don’t make assumptions about her based on the color of her skin. That she’s not at risk, out there in the world as an adult, because she’s a Black woman.”
Sasha is a student at the University of Michigan.
