Michelle Obama Joins Instagram

Get ready to add another profile to your ‘now following’ list as First Lady Michelle Obama has officially launched her own Instagram account.

It took some flier miles for MO to jumpstart her new social media platform as the toned mademoiselle—username ‘michelleobama’—captured her inaugural pic Wednesday (June 26) during the First Family’s weeklong trip to Africa.

“My first instagram! So inspired and so impressed by these extraordinary young women.-mo #FLOTUSinAfrica,” Mrs. Obama wrote under the flick of her cheesing with her daughters and students of an all-girls middle school in Senegal.

The Obamas also schmoozed with Senegal’s President Macky Sall and First Lady Marieme Faye Sall while styling on the cameras with color-coordinated pastel ensembles.

Africa is one stop on the three-country visit President Obama has planned within the coming weeks. —Andrew Asare
