While other children asked Obama about her favorite food or color, the young girl handed the first lady a piece of paper and said: "My dad's been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his resume."

The first lady immediately gave the girl a long hug.

"Oh my goodness," she told her during their embrace.

Obama then went back to her seat.

"Well, it's a little private, but she's doing something for her dad," she told others in the room before looking at the girl again.
