Is Sasha Obama Going to Become a Michigan Wolverine this Fall?
Signs point to yes.
Former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama watched their youngest daughter, Sasha, graduate from a Washington D.C. high school on Tuesday. Now the next step for the 18-year-old is college, of course. Some have wondered if she would follow in her older sister's footsteps and attend Harvard but it's more likely that Sasha will be headed to the Mitten state to start her undergrad at the University of Michigan.
However, there is no official confirmation from the Obama's or the university. A U of M spokesman told the Detroit Free Press:
It is university policy not to confirm the admission status for any student.
So why the speculation?
Back in December a video was posted to what is believed to be Sasha's personal Instagram account, of her on a road trip to Michigan with two friends. She captioned: “So proud to say I’m going to college with my sisters!!” She also posted a picture of the Big House and tagged the university (via Free Press). I tried to search for this personal account with no luck but being the president's daughter I'm sure she's made it super secret to find.
Regardless, it's pretty cool knowing that Sasha will potentially become a Michigander in the near future.
