The Secret Service has been a big part of the Obama girls' lives for the past eight years. Michelle Obama said in an interview with Rachel Ray that the Secret Service members are the ones who taught Malia to drive. But as the girls prepare to leave the political spotlight, it looks like the Secret Service won't completely disappear. In , Obama overturned a Congressional decision to restrict Secret Service protection for former Presidents.
The order would also authorize protection for former First Children until they are Malia has already aged out, but Sasha won't turn 16 until June, so she will probably have her Secret Service shadows around a little while longer.

Or maybe the sisters will focus on social stigmas, such as the pressures females face to adhere to narrow beauty standards.
In a March interview with Time magazine, the president discussed his daughters coming to grips with societal expectations. The girls might have a new address, but it looks like they are using their celebrity status to positively propel their futures.
