All eyes have been on Malia Obama and Sasha Obama as they've grown up from little girls running through the White House to accomplished young women following in their accomplished 'rents footsteps. Barack Obama's daughters aren't so little anymore, with Malia celebrating her 19th birthday today. (On the Fourth of July, no less!) And last month, Sasha looked absolutely gorgeous at her sweet 16 birthday bash.
Malia has quite the year ahead, as she prepares for her first year of college at Harvard University. Impressive, right? She's also interned with Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and worked with Lena Dunham on the set of Girls.
What better way to celebrate Malia's big day than with a trip down memory lane? It's hard to believe the nation met the former first daughters, then 9 and 6-years-old, back in 2008 when their father was elected POTUS.
Now, this duo is taking the world by storm with fearless fashion (can't forget about Michelle Obama), a tight-knit bond and big ideas. Scroll down to see Malia and Sasha in every stage of adolescence.
Happy birthday, Malia! Here's to your best year yet.
