Sasha and Malia Obama through the years(43 images)

President Barack Obama's daughters Malia and Sasha Obama were 11- and 8-years-old, respectively when their father took office in 2009. The girls have grown up the spotlight and were featured in Time magazine's "25 Most Influential Teens of 2014." Here's a gallery featuring UPI's best photos of the Obama siblings during their time as first daughters.
