10-Year-Old Girl Hands Unemployed Dad's Résumé to Michelle Obama

"My dad's been out of a job for three years, and I wanted to give you his résumé."

Thursday, Michelle Obama hosted the children of White House employees at its annual "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" event. The children gathered to have a Q & A with Mrs. Obama. The questions were what one would expect from young kids -- favorite color or places to visit. But one little girl, Charlotte Bell, did not have a question. Instead, she took the opportunity to stand up and hand her unemployed dad's résumé to Mrs. Obama.

Handing over the piece of paper, Charlotte said, “My dad’s been out of a job for three years, and I wanted to give you his résumé."

Surprised, Mrs. Obama said, "Oh my goodness." She bent down, hugged the girl and told her, "Good job. I will take it."

"Well, it's a little private, but she's doing something for her dad. Alright? Got it." she said holding up the résumé.

Charlotte's dad, who worked on the Obama campaign in 2012, has been looking for a policy job for two years with the Obama administration, according to Associated Press.

During the event, Mrs. Obama told the crowd of children, "We know how much you guys sacrifice because your parents work here." Adding, "Our kids go through it and it’s not a lot of fun."

Mrs. Obama certainly did not waste an event full of kids to don her "first mom" hat. She told them to eat their vegetables and to exercise, stumping her "Let's Move" campaign. The Washington Post reports hearing "ews" and "boos" when Mrs. Obama mentioned her favorite food as veggie pizza or when she implored them to do their homework.

With mom hat firmly in place, the first lady slammed sugary drinks and chicken nuggets warning they lead to bad health and said, "I didn’t want that for my kid, and I certainly didn’t want that for any kids in this country."
