FLOTUS Joins Instagram

Michelle Obama is certainly up in the social media world. The First Lady joined Instagram, sharing six posts with us for the very first time.

Mrs. Obama is currently in Senegal with the President on their first major tour of Africa, and she’s documenting her trip. She’s excited too! “My first instagram! So inspired and so impressed by these extraordinary young women. -mo #FLOTUSinAfrica,” she wrote on her first post.

From meeting those “extraordinary women” at MLK Middle School, an all-girl school in Dakar to visiting the Door of No Return in Goree Island, Mrs. Obama is reminding us why we adore her.

She’s even tried out Instagram’s new video feature by capturing the MLK students performing a dance at the welcome ceremony and her shaking hands with the people of Goree Island.

FLOTUS is creating a digital scrapbook for all of us to see, and we can’t wait to see what she posts next.
