Forget politics, Malia Obama is gearing up for a future in the entertainment industry following her stint as one of the First Kids. Get it, girl!
It’s believed Miz Obama will begin working at the New York office of The Weinstein Co. this upcoming February. While it’s unclear which department the up-and-comer will be placed in, it is speculated she’ll join either the marketing or development teams. But, why is she starting next month?
Well, the 18-year-old’s family is taking a vacay in Palm Springs not long after Donald Trump‘s inauguration. And now that Malia’s no longer the First Daughter, and not currently in school (she heads to Harvard University in the Fall), perhaps she just wants to keep herself busy?
Nonetheless, this isn’t the first time Malia’s expressed an interest in working in the film and TV business. As you may recall, back in 2015, the politician’s kid worked as an intern in New York on Lena Dunham‘s HBO hit, Girls. Still, working for Weinstein is far more prestigious than working for Dunham… just sayin’!
Although, we can’t say we’re surprised to learn Harvey has extended an internship to the future Ivy Leaguer as the Hollywood powerhouse has held several fundraisers for President Obama in the past.
Regardless, we think Malia is a welcomed addition to the Tinseltown fold! Welcome.
