Girl, 10, hands over dad's CV in meeting with First Lady

A 10-year-old American girl used a face-to-face meeting with the First Lady as an opportunity to try and help her dad find a job.

While attending a question and answer session with Michelle Obama at The White House, schoolgirl Charlotte Bell approached the First Lady and handed her her dad's CV.

Charlotte told Mrs Obama: "My dad's been out of work for three years and I wanted to give you his resume."

The two embraced on stage, with the First Lady saying: "Oh my goodness." The two then spoke before Mrs Obama addressed the crowd: "Well it's a little private, but she's doing something for her dad. Alright?".

She held up the piece of paper in her hand and shook it. "Got it."
