The first lady was inspired during a visit with Senegalese students.
First Lady Michelle Obama used her visit to Senegal, West Africa, to make her debut on Instagram. The first photo was a group shot of her, daughters Malia and Sasha, Senegalese First Lady Marieme Sall and a group of students who attend the all-girls Martin Luther King Middle School.
"My first instagram! So inspired and so impressed by these extraordinary young women. -mo #FLOTUSinAfrica," she wrote.
