President Obama’s oldest daughter will intern for major Hollywood film producer and Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein after her father’s exit from the Oval Office. The New York Post first reported Thursday and The Hollywood Reporter on Friday confirmed Malia Obama’s internship with the Weinstein Co.
The Reporter’s source said Malia Obama will begin working at the company’s New York City office in February after her family’s vacation in Palm Springs, Calif. The Post, meanwhile, said Malia Obama still plans on attending Harvard University later this year after her internship.
The alumna of Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C., announced last year she would take a gap year before starting college. Her internship with the Weinstein Co. follows similar roles in the entertainment and fashion industries.
Malia Obama in 2015 interned on the set of HBO’s hit series “Girls,” and also worked on actress Halle Berry’s CBS series “Extant.”
