Sasha Obama, the daughter of former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama, was seen out with her new boyfriend, Clifton Powell Jr.
After she traveled to Los Angeles to study at the University of Southern California, Sasha and Clifton Powell Jr., a former collegiate basketball player who now works as a commercial director, supposedly began dating.
Last September, the former first daughter transferred to USC from the University of Michigan, where she had spent two years as a student.

Sasha and her 6-foot-5 reported boyfriend seemed loved-up when they went for a walk together earlier this week, according to images obtained by the Daily Mail.
Powell Jr. donned trousers, a T-shirt, and a backward baseball cap, while she wore a peasant skirt, a crop top, and Birkenstock clogs.
Powell Jr., often known as Cliff and CP3, grew up in the posh Ladera Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles and attended Village Christian High School in the San Fernando Valley. The annual tuition for the private school is $28,340.
Powell Jr. received a four-year basketball scholarship to the University of California, Santa Barbara after graduating from high school, but he left less than a year later to pursue his passion for film.
According to his website’s bio, he currently works as a “writer/director” and has generated material for major corporations such as Nike and Peloton.
While his father worked in Hollywood, Powell Jr.’s mother, Kimberly Powell, is an entrepreneur who owns a catering company called Chef Kim and an interior design company called whateverUneed Designs. Powell Jr.’s 29-year-old sister, May Powell, owns a beauty company called Suga Honey Glam Incorporated.
Sasha’s new romance is being reported just days after her mother, Michelle Obama, revealed that she has a boyfriend.
“They were huge fans of the Jonas Brothers.” “Now they’re bringing adult men home,” the former first lady, 58, said of her daughters, Sasha and 23-year-old Malia Obama, on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Tuesday. “Before, it was simply pop bands,” says the narrator. They now have boyfriends and are living normal lives.”
Rory Farquharson, Malia’s boyfriend, and Malia have been dating since they met at Harvard in 2017.
