Barack, Michelle, And Malia Obama Come Out In Full Support On Sasha’s High School Graduation Day
Youngest Obama daughter, Sasha, just turned 18 a few days ago, has already attended prom, and on Sunday, June 9, has graduated from high school. All of these major milestones have been watched over by her loving parents Barack and Michelle Obama, and supported by her older sister Malia.
The family was in attendance at her graduation ceremony from the prestigious Sidwell Friends School in Washington D.C. reports The Daily Mail. The beaming Obamas were photographed watching the ceremony and mingling with other parents in the crowd. Former White House photographer Pete Souza was also present for the day.
Her father’s best friend Joe Biden was also in attendance to support his granddaughter Maisy’s graduation at the same school. It seems like they really do everything together!
Biden posted a touching tribute to Maisy on social media in celebration of her achievements.
Sasha can be seen in the second to last row, on the top left side in the Sidwell class of 2019 group photo posted on social media. She wore white with the other women of the class and smiled into the camera.
Page Six reported that Sasha’s next step might be attending college at the University of Michigan in the fall. This hasn’t been confirmed by the Obama family, but Sasha had supposedly posted a private social media photo of the school with the caption,
“So proud to say I’m going to college with my sisters!!”

In any case, Sasha will be following in the footsteps of other presidential kids by graduating from Sidwell, following a very long tradition. Her sister Malia was a 2016 graduate before going on to Harvard, and Chelsea Clinton graduated from Sidwell before her time at Stanford. Nixon’s and Eisenhower's children also attended, The Daily Mail reports.
