In fact, according to a White House official, Sasha had to miss the momentous occasion because of her sense of duty… Not to her dad, but to her schooling.
The 15-year-old stayed back in Washington, D.C. because she had a science exam on the day of her father’s farewell address.
Despite Malia’s absence, Obama addressed both his daughters, saying:
You have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion.
You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that Iâve done in my life, Iâm most proud to be your dad.

While we’re sure her teachers wouldn’t mind her missing class for this moment in American history – so personal to the young teen – it turns out the First Family practise what they preach and put a heavy price on the importance of education.
SashaÂ Obama, the most studious and admirable young lady in the world… Out.
