Michelle Obama joins Instagram, shares photos from Africa 

The First Lady of the United States has become the latest celebrity to join a popular photo sharing site. Michelle Obama shocked a number of people Wednesday when she joined Instagram. For her first official photo, the First Lady posted a picture of her and her Malia Obama meeting with several women on their recent trip to Africa.

“My first instagram!” the First Lady wrote in the caption. “So inspired and so impressed by these extraordinary young women. –mo #FLOTUSinAfrica.”

The FLOTUS later posted a video of her being greeted by a school of dancing African youth and the famed “Door of No Return” where slaves were shipped out to North America.

“You all are role models for my daughters, which is why I brought them here today,” said Michelle to the youth prior to visiting the door.
