Girl gives Michelle Obama her unemployed father's résumé Child presents dad's resume to Michelle Obama A girl surprised First Lady Michelle Obama with her father's resume at "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day"' in Washington, DC. A young girl who was a guest at the White House's annual "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" did her father a favor. She handed Michelle Obama his résumé. When Obama called on a girl, identified by the Associated Press as 10-year-old Charlotte Bell, during a question-and-answer session, the girl stood up and walked toward the first lady. "My dad's been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his résumé," Charlotte said. Obama seemed surprised, then invited the girl on stage and gave her a hug. "Oh my goodness," Obama said while hugging Charlotte. The two briefly spoke and Obama held up the résumé. "Well it's a little private, but she's doing something for her dad. Alright?" Obama said. She held up the résumé in her hand and shook it. "Got it." A young girl offered US First Lady Michelle Obama her father's CV during questions at the White House's Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Charlotte Bell, 10, told Mrs Obama her dad had been out of work for several years. Mrs Obama told the other children the girl was "doing something for her dad". When the event - attended by children of employees of the Obama administration - ended, she hugged the 10-year-old and took the CV. Charlotte's mother, an administration employee who did not want to be identified, told the Associated Press news agency her husband had worked for the Obama campaign in 2012. He had been looking for a policy job since then. Charlotte's family had joked over the weekend about making a job pitch to the first lady, but her parents didn't know she would give it a try, her mother said.
