MALIA OBAMA, the eldest daughter of former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle, has landed a internship at major movie and television studio, The Weinstein Company.
The 18-year-old, whose father left The White House yesterday (Jan 20), will reportedly work with the marketing or development teams in the New York office of the Weinstein Company in February.
The Weinstein Company was founded by Hollywood mogul Harvery Weinstein, who’s a big supporter of the Democratic Party, has hosted fundraisers for the party, and is friendly with Barack and Michelle Obama.
Weinstein has produced many notable and award-winning films, including Lion and Shakespeare in Love.
The Weinstein Company also produces TV shows, such as Project Runway and Mob Wives.
Malia took a gap year between graduating from the Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, and attending Harvard University this fall.
She has also held two previous entertainment internships on HBO’s Girls and CBS’s Extant.
