Sasha Obama Stuns In Prom Photos
Sasha Obama, the youngest of two daughters shared by former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama, was placed in the spotlight once again after photos of her dressed in her prom gown made rounds on social media.
I feel like a big brother watching my little sister go to the prom.
Sasha Obama is such a beauty.
And shout out to the simplicity of her dress. pic.twitter.com/B5xrz6dFWl

Sasha, now 17, has been in the spotlight since the age of seven when her father was elected president in November of 2008. Although she does not have public social media accounts, pictures and videos of her, and more notably Malia, have been leaked to the public many times before. However, following years of scrutiny that came with being the president’s daughters, many have noted the positive reaction to the pictures as refreshing.
So glad to see most people on Twitter are posting positive tweets about Sasha Obama instead of attacking her for her fathers views and work. Regardless of your party affiliation, she’s still a child and doesn’t need hate. GJ twitter! ❤️

In her best-selling memoir published in 2018, Becoming, Michelle Obama told a funny story about meeting Sasha’s prom date for the first time. “Barack and I shook the young man’s hand, snapped a few pictures, and gave our daughter a hug before sending them on their way,” she wrote. “We took what was perhaps unfair comfort in the knowledge that Malia’s security detail would basically ride the boy’s bumper all the way to the restaurant where they were going for dinner before the dance and would remain on quiet duty throughout the night.”
