10-Year-Old Girl Gives Unemployed Dad's Resume To Michelle Obama
Michelle Obama was holding a question-and-answer session in the East Room during the White House’s annual “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,” when a 10-year-old girl presented her with her unemployed father’s resume.
Girl Gives Michelle Obama Dad's Resume
When the First Lady called on Charlotte Bell, who was sitting in the front row, the girl said, “My dad’s been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his resume.” Obama walked over to the girl, gave her a hug and said, “Oh my goodness," reported ABC News.
Upon sitting back in her chair, holding on to the white piece of paper, Obama told the crowd, “Well, it’s a little private, but she’s doing something for her dad, right?” Appearing to look over at Bell, Obama reassured the young guest, “Got it,” and placed the resume beside her. When she left the East Room, Obama reportedly had the resume in hand.
Bell was attending the “Take Our Daughter and Sons to Work Day” event with her mother, who is an executive branch employee. She has declined to be identified. The father, Ben Bell, worked on Obama’s campaign in 2012, according to the New York Daily News. He’s been trying to get a policy job, specifically within the Obama administration, for the last couple of years.
