WASHINGTON - A young girl offered US First Lady Michelle Obama her father's resume at an event on Thursday attended by children of White House employees.

During the question-and-answer session, while other children asked Mrs Obama about her favourite food or colour, 10-year-old Charlotte Bell handed the First Lady a piece of paper and said: "My dad's been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his resume."

Mrs Obama gave the girl a long hug, US media reported.

Explaining to the other children, Mrs Obama said: "It's a little private, but she's doing something for her dad."
