Sasha Obama has grown up right before our eyes — and Wednesday, June 10, she’s celebrating a milestone: her 19th birthday.
It seems like not so long ago that Sasha and her big sister Malia were youngsters growing up at the White House while their father, President Barack Obama, served as president. Now, the Obama girls have moved out of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. — and out of Washington, D.C. Malia is gearing up for her final year of study as an undergraduate student at Harvard University, while Sasha just completed her first year as an undergrad at University of Michigan.
As Sasha enters the last of her teenage years, FN is feeling nostalgic. In honor of her birthday, FN is looking back at some of her standout shoe moments through the years, from her adorable days as a youngster at the White House to her current days as a style-savvy teen.
