We desperately miss the days when we would wake up, turn on the news and would see pictures of Malia and Sasha Obama roaming the halls of the White House with their parents. It almost seems like we’re living in an entirely different world these days. It’s hard to believe it’s been six years since the Obama family was leading our country, but the family has been up to a lot in their post-presidency days.
Malia, 24, is a graduate of Harvard University, and now working with Donald Glover as a writer on his upcoming Amazon Prime show, Hive. Sasha, 21, is a student at the University of Southern California and enjoying the sunshine after doing her freshman year at the University of Michigan. They have both grown up to become incredibly talented, intelligent and independent women — and mom Michelle spilled the beans to People that the two will be living together in LA.
Michelle too has had a whirlwind couple of years with her bestselling memoir Becoming and newly released book The Light We Carry. In the 2020 Netflix documentary for Becoming, Sasha and Malia actually gave their first-ever public interview and couldn’t stop gushing about how proud they are of their mom. It’s amazing how fast time flies by — from little girls standing by their dad Barack Obama’s side when he was elected president in 2008 to young women ready to take on the world.
So in honor of Malia, Sasha, and the years of growing up in the White House, let’s take a look back at some throwback pics of them over the last 13 years.
