6 Reasons Birthday Girl Malia Obama Is Way Cooler Than You Were In Middle School
5:45 pm, July 2nd | by
You know what’s even cooler than having a Fourth of July birthday? Being the first daughter and having a Fourth of July birthday. Such is the case for Malia Obama, the eldest child of our president. She turns 14 on Wednesday and surely has something fun planned. A little One Direction again, maybe? Nah, methinks she has moved on to greater pastures…The soon-to-be high schooler is living the dream I would have killed for at that stage of life. Here are a couple reasons why she’s way cooler than you were at her age.
1.The five foot nine young lady is almost as tall as her father
And when your dad is the leader of the country,
nothing compares to that.
2.She goes to the same school as Chelsea Clinton did
Malia is a student at the prestigious Sidwell Friends School, where former first daughter Chelsea Clinton matriculated. After that, Clinton went on to Stanford University, so Malia probably has a bright future ahead as well.
3.She saw One Direction
Did your parents forbid you from going to any Backstreet Boys concerts when you were young? Then you'll be happy to know Malia
lived out the teen dream of seeing the 2012 "It" boy band, One Direction live. Living vicariously through you, Malia. Mainly because I secretly want to watch One Direction perform as well.
4.She went to Mexico with some friends for spring break
Sounds like the
vacay of a lifetime for a teen!
5.She's embarrassed by her famous dad
I would have loved the perks of famous parents growing up, but Malia is not a fan of the massive attention her dad garners. Michelle Obama
explained it as such: "The other day, Malia was like, 'Oh no, is dad coming? Is he bringing all those cars? Really it's like the other day I think they almost hit my teacher.' My kids are like any children -- anything we do is not cool. They will go in the other direction." Here's a young lady who is not easily won over.
6.She wears heart-shaped sunglasses
...And manages not to look like a total dork in them.
