Michelle Obama launched her Instagram account today and, along with four pictures from her Dakar, Senegal (at the time of writing), she promptly made a video. Check it out below.

She captioned it, "Students perform a welcome ceremony at MLK Middle School in Dakar. #FLOTUSinAfrica"

Other notable notables include that her profile picture is her Vogue portrait shot by Annie Leibovitz (round two, with bangs). She only follows the White House's Instagram. Also, this dress.
