Sasha Obama’s USC Graduation: A Moment of Pride for the Obamas

Barack and Michelle Obama are proud that their daughter Sasha has graduated from USC. Even before “Natasha Obama” was named as one of the hundreds of students graduating from USC’s Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences on Friday morning, there was talk on campus about some famous faces.

People on social media posted pictures of her parents, the 44th president and former first lady, sitting behind students in caps and gowns at Allyson Felix Field, while students at the event texted their friends at other schools about the famous guests.

Kim Demu was sitting next to Sasha Obama’s parents, Barack and Michelle Obama, and bigger sister, Malia, but there were more than a dozen Secret Service agents between them. Still, she was very happy to see the family she had loved for a long time, and she took a lot of pictures.

Demu said, “I knew [Sasha Obama] transferred from the University of Michigan to here, but I didn’t know she was graduating in this class with my niece. Very exciting!”

Sasha Obama, who is 21 years old, smiled as she walked across the stage to enjoy getting her sociology degree. Her sister and dad were in the audience and clapped. When her name was said out loud, almost everyone in the room applauded.

The Obamas tried to stay out of sight as much as possible during the USC graduation celebrations. They left right after Sasha Obama got off the stage.

“I was so excited to see Obama and Michelle,” said Michelle Davies, who graduated from college on Friday. “I wanted a picture [with them] so bad, but then they left early. If I would have gotten a picture, I would have passed out.”

Michelle Obama sent Sasha Obama a message on Twitter on May 11 to greet her on her graduation from USC: 

The political science major said that she knew Sasha from around campus. She also said that there aren’t many African Americans at USC, so seeing Barack and Michelle Obama on Friday was something special.

“I waved at them, and Michelle waved back at me,” she said, almost jumping for joy.

The Obamas didn’t talk to the crowd or take pictures with people there. Instead, they cheered for the graduates and listened to the speakers. As he left, Barack Obama gave other parents and family members his best wishes.

Alfred Chen and his friends ran to the event at Dornsife College as soon as they heard from the Obamas.

“We tried to find them but we can’t, there’s so many people,” Chen, who graduated from engineering school on Friday, added. Chen’s group even posed for a photo with the Dornsife College ceremony in the background, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Obamas.

Philip Lewis sent Sasha Obama a tweet on May 13 to congratulate her:

As Sharon MacDonnell waited for her son to cross the stage, she had better luck. As the Obamas left the event early, she was about as close to them as she could get.

“I came over to see him, and then I spotted all the guys in suits,” said MacDonnell, who got some great photos of the former president. As a graduate of USC, she said that having her former first family there made it even more special.

When her family moved to the White House in 2009, Sasha was only seven years old. In 2019, she finished high school in Washington, D.C., two years after her father had been president for two terms.

She first went to school at the University of Michigan, but then she moved to USC. Malia Obama also lives and works in the film business in Los Angeles.
