During Barack Obama’s first four years in office, his daughters, Malia and Sasha, have grown grown from babies into young adults before our very eyes.This kind of publicity and attention can ruin people, but these girls don’t appear to have been spoiled by the spotlight. 

Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14, are now entering their teen years and are becoming more visible. And if their dad wins a second term, their life in the spotlight will continue for at least another four years. 

In Washington, they attend the prestigious Sidwell Friends School.

Since then, the girls have adjusted to their new lives in Washington, D.C, and have taken advantage of a few of the perks as well, including flying aboard Air Force One

The girls usually stay at home while their father travels, but they did join him on a trip to Europe in 2009, visiting Rome's Colosseum, the Kremlin, and even got to tour Buckingham Palace and meet the Queen.

And they've spent Christmas vacations in Hawaii.

And this summer, Sasha and Malia went to a summer camp in New Hampshire.

But they're not too spoiled. While the Obamas host birthday parties, the girls don't get birthday presents.
