Did you know that Sasha Obama’s real name is Natasha? That her sister’s name, Malia, means queen and calm in Swahili and Hawaiian Those are just a couple of the many facts 13-year-old Noah McCullough knows about the soon-to-be “first kids.”
Noah followed up with his first book on presidential trivia (yes, he is just 13) with his latest presidential history book, “First Kids: The True Stories of All the Presidents’ Children.” This whiz-kid historian put together information on all 43 presidents’ kids, from the games they play to their likes and dislikes. He discovered the White House, equipped with a movie theater and a bowling alley, is a cool place to grow up. Noah says all first kids are unique except for the fact that their father was put in charge of the Free World.
Noah himself has clear plans to run for president in 2032 when he is 37 years old. But, he tells us, “From writing the book I learned that the pressures of being a first kid affected some of the kids in a great way but for others the pressure was too much. If I have kids I will make sure they’re OK with it first.”
