Watch a Young Girl Give Michelle Obama Her Unemployed Dad's Résumé

Apr 25 2014 - 9:26am

During the annual "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" event at the White House on Thursday, First Lady Michelle Obama shared a surprising moment with one young girl. When the first lady called on 10-year-old Charlotte Bell in a question-and-answer session, the child stood and approached the stage, saying, "My dad's been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his résumé." Obama invited her on stage and hugged her, and the pair spoke for a moment before the first lady explained to the audience what had happened.

Charlotte's mom, an employee of the executive branch, said the family joked about making a job pitch [1] earlier in the weekend, but they didn't know Charlotte actually planned to do it. Her father, Ben Bell, worked on the Obama campaign in 2012, and he's been looking for a policy job for more than two years. Watch Obama's full question-and-answer session below, and go to 17:20 to see her interaction with Charlotte.
