Little girl gives Michelle Obama her unemployed dad’s résumé

Little girl gives Michelle Obama her unemployed dad’s résumé

By Phyllis Stark. CREATED Apr 24, 2014

A touching moment at the White House Thursday was caught on tape. A 10-year-old girl who was visiting as part of the White House’s annual "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" told Michelle Obama her father has been unemployed for three years, and then handed the first lady his résumé. She was rewarded with a hug from Obama.

The first lady had called on the girl, Charlotte Bell, during a question-and-answer session. According to the Washington Post, the girl stood up, walked toward the first lady and said, “My dad's been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his résumé.”
 
Replied a surprised Obama, “Oh my goodness.” (Watch the touching moment below.)
 
The first lady then told the crowd, “Well it's a little private, but she's doing something for her dad. Alright?" She then held up the resume and said, “Got it."
