Michelle, Malia and Sasha Obama Team Up For A Trip To Morocco

​'We left the president behind because he's a boy.'


The dream family team are currently on a world tour, spreading the word about the American-led 'Let Girls Learn' initiative. 

The initiative aims to help educate girls, by 'working together to open the doors of education for girls around the world' helping them to 'build a healthier family, a stronger community and a brighter future.' 

Morocco was the first stop, where they attended a sit down summit with others that support the cause, including Meryl Streep and Freida Pinto. 


The First Lady told the listening audience that 'when you lose heart, you lose everything' and encouraged them to speak up for their rights to education. 


It's great to see the Obamas using their influence to support young women's rights ahead of the elections in November, when someone else will enter the White House, and we can no longer refer to Michelle Obama as 'FLOTUS'.  

After speaking at the summit, they had a traditional Iftar dinner at the King Palace in Marrakech, Morocco. 

The general sentiment is one that bears repeating over and over: 'we know that a girl with an education can shape her own destiny, lift up her family, and transform her community.'

When asked where the President was, The First Lady explained, 'This is the special girl-power unit of the Obama household. We left the president behind because he's a boy.' It's not often that the President gets denied from a team, but this is one team we would all love to be on.
