As a member of one of the world’s favorite American families, Sasha Obama has been in the spotlight for most of her life. It has been years since their family vacated the white house, but many are still very much interested in the details of their life. Regarding Sasha Obama, her education has always been a burning subject of interest.
Despite the fame of their father’s political career conferred on them, Sasha and her sister Malia, have always been known to keep a low profile. In case you were wondering, this article reveals pertinent details about Sasha Obama, particularly her boyfriend, education, and what she is up to these days.
Sasha Obama’s Education
Though popularly known as Sasha, the former President’s daughter has her full name Natasha Obama. Before the ex-POTUS’ election that prompted the family to move to the nation’s administrative capital, they used to live in Chicago, Illinois.
Sasha Obama began her education at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, along with her sister Malia, who is three years older than she is. By the time they moved to Washington, D.C, the two sisters had to continue their education, so they got enrolled at the elite Sidwell Friends School in 2009.
It was at this Quaker school that Sasha Obama completed both her elementary and high school education, after which she graduated in 2019. Unlike her sister, who took a gap year before going to college, Sasha did not waste any time before enrolling at the college of her choice.
Now, this is where it gets interesting, from the former POTUS to Malia, the Obamas have all attended Ivy League schools at some point in their academic pursuits. Daddy dearest got his undergraduate degree from Columbia University, the former first lady went to Princeton, and Malia is currently studying at Harvard, where their parents went to law school.
However, Sasha Obama decided to strike out from the Ivy League norm and chose to pursue college education from a non-Ivy school, the University of Michigan instead. The excited college student shared the news on her Instagram account when she posted a picture of herself with two friends on the Ann Harbor campus. Based on the reactions the post got, the excitement was not limited to the freshman alone. Some of her fans even went as far as calling her choice a turning point for the generation Z people.

Though her classes didn’t officially start till the beginning of the next academic session, people saw her distinctive secret service detail at the summer freshman orientation. Sasha Obama’s course of study remains unknown at the time, but that might change very soon.
As you would expect, Sasha going off to college is a watershed moment for her parents, as they have essentially become empty nesters. Her mum, in particular, may have shed one or two tears as she was overwhelmed when she went to drop her babies off at school. Still, the leader in Michelle Obama did not fail to rear her head. The former first lady did not leave either of her kids without some golden nuggets to live by f college.
What We Know About Her Love Life
Born in 2001, Sasha Obama is already a grown woman in every sense of the word. She is currently at an age where having a boyfriend – or girlfriend – would not be frowned upon. Before we dive into whether Sasha Obama has a boyfriend or not, you should know if she is even attracted to men in the first place.
Many seem hopeful in their quest for answers as regards Sasha Obama’s love interest, but all we have are still speculations, at best. Unlike her sister Malia who has been in a committed relationship with her handsome British beau for a long time now, Sasha’s case is a bit different.
Save for her high school prom date, Chris Milton, no one – male or female, has been romantically linked to Sasha yet. The two seemed happy and cozy in their pictures, but that’s only natural since they were graduating. Chris Milton was later identified as a good friend of Sasha’s, but their relationship had no footprint on the media before their prom.
Despite Daddy dearest’s secret service jokes and faux strictness regarding his daughters’ love lives, the former president doesn’t seem to mind them dating. On several occasions, he has expressed his trust for his daughters, acknowledging they are equipped to make the right decisions based on their upbringing.
With the parents’ blessing assured, we have two possible options. On the one hand, Sasha Obama could be attracted to men, and her handsome prom date is her boyfriend. On the other hand, Chris Milton is perhaps just a good friend, and she is attracted to women.
Whatever her sexuality, the fact, for now, remains that Sasha Obama is keeping her love interests under wraps.
Where Is Sasha Now?
It is not exactly news that Sasha Obama prefers to spend her time away from the spotlight. The question where is Sasha? has been coming up since her father’s days in office. You may recall the former President’s farewell address, which had his ever-supportive first lady, Michelle, and their firstborn Malia at the front row, but not Sasha.
Unfortunately, Sasha, who was still in high school at the time, could not be physically present at the speech because she reportedly had exams to write. Her absence at such a significant event spun a lot of speculations, but, like many others, those eventually died down.
However, she is not the only Obama to leave people wondering about their whereabouts. Being away from the glare of the public seems to be the modus operandi of the entire family—case in point, their new Martha’s Vineyard home.
That said, she is most likely spending her days at home or partying out in the Bahamas with her friends.
The point is, Sasha Obama is probably out doing what children of former presidents do while begins the next stage of her life.
