First lady Michelle Obama officially launched her Instagram account today.

It's easy to find.

She's "michelleobama." And she signed her caption of her first photo using "-mo," which means it's specifically from her.

The photo isn't a selfie per se, but it does include Mrs. O. and says, "My first instagram! So inspired and so impressed by these extraordinary young women. -mo #FLOTUSinAfrica"

The first lady, along with the president and daughters Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14, arrived on Wednesday in Dakar, Senegal.

You can follow along with the First Family's Africa trip by following the hashtag the White House launched on Instagram on Wednesday through the new @whitehouse account, #FLOTUSinAfrica.

The latest @whitehouse video shows the presidential view of Dakar as citizens welcome the president and first lady en route to the presidential palace. Warning: You might get a touch of motion sickness.
