Former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama attended their daughter Sasha’s graduation from the University of Southern California (USC) on Friday, May 12th. Sasha Obama earned a degree in film studies from the USC School of Cinematic Arts.
The graduation ceremony was held in-person, with strict COVID-19 safety measures in place. The Obamas were seen wearing masks as they arrived at the ceremony.
Sasha Obama’s graduation marks another milestone in the family’s journey, as both of the Obamas’ daughters are now college graduates. Malia Obama graduated from Harvard University in 2021.
The Obamas have long been supporters of higher education, with Michelle Obama launching the “Reach Higher” initiative during her time as First Lady to encourage young people to pursue college and other post-secondary opportunities.
The Obamas’ attendance at Sasha’s graduation also serves as a reminder of their enduring popularity and influence in American politics and culture. Since leaving the White House in 2017, the Obamas have continued to be active in public life, advocating for various causes and initiatives.
Barack Obama recently released his memoir “A Promised Land,” which has been a bestseller since its release in November 2020. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama’s “Becoming” has become one of the bestselling memoirs of all time.
The Obamas’ attendance at Sasha’s graduation was a moment of pride and celebration for the family, and a reminder of their ongoing impact on American life.
