While her dad is getting attention for criticizing Democrats’ messaging to “defund the police,” Sasha Obama is busy living her absolute best life. The 19-year-old University of Michigan student definitely has a serious side, but she’s also using social media as a vehicle to showcase her playfulness, as well.
Case and point: Her name was among the top trending topics Wednesday morning because of her age-appropriate behavior in a recent Tik Tok video that she starred in with her friends dancing and lip-synching to a song.

As you can see, the youngest Obama daughter is just vibing with her friends to the song, “Adderall (Corvette Corvette),” by rapper Popp Hunna.
Twitter users quickly noticed her wardrobe and accessories, like her fingernails, as further harmless evidence that she is indeed living her best life.
The cameo appearance on her friend’s Tik Tok, a video-centric app that routinely incorporates music in users’ posts, was far from Sasha Obama’s only foray into social media stardom.
It was only in October when she appeared next to her friend in a Tik Tok video lip-synching the NSFW lyrics to the “Said Sum” remix by Moneybagg Yo and featuring his fellow rappers the City Girls and Da Baby.

As Madame Noire wrote it its coverage at the time, “Please let Sasha Obama rap her City Girl lyrics in peace.”
These instances are not the only time Sasha Obama has broken the internet.
Just last year she made headlines after photos from her prom went viral. The then-17-year-old looked seriously all grown up while keeping it simple by sporting a black dress, hoop earrings and flawless makeup.

To be sure, there is much more to Sasha Obama than social media exploits. Her famous father, President Barack Obama, recently revealed that she and her sister, Malia, participated in the Black Lives Matter protests following the police killing of George Floyd on Memorial Day in Minneapolis.
“They had a very clear sense of what was right and what was wrong and [of] their own agency and the power of their voice and the need to participate,” the 45th president told PEOPLE late last month. “Malia and Sasha found their own ways to get involved with the demonstrations and activism that you saw with young people this summer, without any prompting from Michelle and myself, on their own initiative.”
Still, in spite of her devotion to activism, there was no shortage of responses to Sasha Obama’s newest Tik Tok video, with Twitter users rushing to encourage the young woman to continue living her best life and protect her from detractors desperately looking for some social media clout. Scroll down to see what people are saying about her latest Tik Tok video.
