Given the out of the simple circumstances of Malia Obama’s life from a young age, she clung to normalcy as much as possible in her personal life.

“They really want normalcy, and the White House isn’t normal,” Michelle Obama shared in an interview with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show.”

In the spite of the conditions she grew up in, which could’ve made her entitled, Malia made the most out of it while staying level-headed. So here’s the stunning transformation from a child who lived into the White House to a TV writer and director based in Los Angeles.

Part of the White House experience is having a full security service with you at all times, which also means going by an encrypted code name.

Malia Obama’s code name was “Radiance,” an alliteration of Barack Obama’s codename “Renegade.”

Following tradition, all the Obama family’s codenames begin with the letter R. Michelle Obama went by “Renaissance,” while Sasha Obama went by “Rosebud.”

The Secret Service was around for numerous core experiences of Malia’s life, from sleepovers, concerts, and even their 1st dates.

While having them around for some of those moments may have been a bit of a drag, I hope even Malia would discover the novelty in telling people that the Secret Service taught her how to drive.
