For more than a decade, Barack Obama has been in the spotlight, first as a freshman senator to watch from Illinois, then as a presidential candidate running a hope-fueled campaign, and finally in two terms as U.S. president. Three important women have been by his side the entire way.
Sasha Obama, at seven, was the youngest person to live in the White House since John F. Kennedy Jr. Malia Obama was 10 when she moved into the White House and will head off to Harvard in the fall. Back in Chicago, Michelle Obama was a working mom; during her time as First Lady, she kept working, leading the charge to get Americans to take on healthy, active lifestyles.
Here are some photos of their most memorable moments.
