With her family’s time in the White House complete, Malia Obama has begun plotting out her future. Now it looks like that will include a job in the film industry.
The Hollywood Reporter has said the 18-year-old has accepted an internship with famed media mogul Harvey Weinstein. The publication notes she will begin work at the New York branch of the Weinstein Company in February and will focus on film marketing and development. The organization is behind several smash hits, including The King’s Speech, Shakespeare in Love and Lion.
This isn’t the first high-profile internship the former First Daughter has nabbed. In 2015, she spent her summer working with Lena Dunham on the set of Girls.
"She’s a fan, and she mentioned that to Lena when she came to the White House,” a source close to the production told Us Weekly . “They’ve known each other and discussed for a while. Lena and her get along great.”
During that time several photos were snapped of the teen on set, delivering coffee for the cast and crew and generally helping out the show’s actors.
The gig followed her first foray into the film industry in 2014 when she worked as a production assistant on Halle Berry’s show Extant.
In a video released on Friday, the pair spoke about continuing their service to the public by opening a foundation.
"After eight years in the White House, Michelle and I now rejoin all of you as private citizens. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the incredible privilege of serving this country that we love," he said.
Michelle then joked about their future plans as Barack gave a thumbs up in approval, saying: "First, we're going to take a little break. We're finally going to get some sleep and take time to be with our family. And just be still for a little bit so we might not be online quite as much as you're used to seeing us."
In the fall, and upon completion of her internship, Malia will head to Harvard University.
