Michelle Obama joins Instagram during trip to Africa
The account is actually run by her office but personal messages from Obama will be signed with her initials: "mo."
That includes the account's debut post, accompanied by the message: "My first instagram! So inspired and so impressed by these extraordinary young women. -mo #FLOTUSinAfrica"
The Instagram launch coincides with the Obama family's visit to Africa which kicked off Wednesday (June 26) in Dakar, Senegal.
