Sasha Obama may have grown up in the White House but she's far from Washington DC now

The 21-year-old has taken her studies from Michigan to Los Angeles where she is settling in perfectly - with the help of someone special. 

Despite moving to a new state, Sasha appears to be more than happy with her new living arrangement which is made easier due to the fact her roommate is her sister, Malia

The young women both relocated and are now living in Brentwood near the USC campus where Sasha is a student. 

In order to pursue a profession as a screenwriter, Malia moved to California in 2021 after receiving her degree from Harvard and her younger sibling couldn't wait to join her.

Malia and her sister Sasha are much loved by fans, and the former President of the United States of America appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden back in May 2021 and was full of praise for his two daughters after joking that he was concerned that they would end up as "weird kids"

Michelle also opened up about the feeling of her and Barack being empty-nesters to Ellen DeGeneres, and while she misses her children she said they're "doing well," and have also become, "just amazing young women".

She joked about their love lives and added: "They loved the Jonas Brothers. Now they are bringing grown men home. Before it was just, like, pop bands. Now they have boyfriends and real lives."

"She said, 'I'm not raising babies, I'm raising real people to be out in the world.' And I kept that in mind with the girls."

The former First Lady concluded: "I mean, they wouldn't always be in that bubble of the White House, so they had to learn to make their beds. They had to learn how to drive.

"They had to learn how to be compassionate, independent, responsible people so that they entered the world as responsible, compassionate, capable people. And I think they are amazing young women because of that."
