It seems that Michelle and President Obama’s daughter Malia Obama is an intern with the HBO show Girls this summer, her second gig in the industry. The teen was spotted in Brooklyn, New York, on the set of the show earlier this week, and it looks like she’s shaping up to have a pretty great summer.
TMZ shares a bit of scoop on Malia Obama’s intern gig. The teen was spotted in Brooklyn on the show’s set on Thursday, and it seems like this will be an ongoing gig for at least part of the summer. As many may remember, Malia also had an entertainment job last summer on Halle Berry’s Extant.
As the New York Daily News reported at the time, the teen scored a production assistant job that was supposed to be kept under wraps, but word leaked out anyway. By all accounts, she did a great job in the position, and it seems her interest in the industry has continued.
In this case with the new Girls gig, Malia was spotted in the Williamsburg area as the show filmed at the Aurora Ristorante, notes Page Six. The show filmed at that location for several hours on Thursday, and Malia was seen sipping on a drink while wearing cutoff jean shorts, a sleeveless shirt, and tennis shoes. While it is said that she did spend some time with the star of the show, Dunham, none of the rest of the presidential family was spotted on set with her.
At this point, not much more about Malia Obama’s internship is known in terms of her duties on the set or how long she’ll be sticking around. Dunham has tweeted about being a fan of the teen before, so Malia’s interest in the industry and Lena’s support of the family may have led to the connection.
Malia turns 17-years-old this weekend, and she currently attends Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. Malia’s younger sister, Sasha, also attends the school and recently turned 14-years-old. As the Daily Caller recently noted, Malia and her family have been touring quite a few colleges in preparations for Malia’s big move to higher education soon.
The Obama teen has reportedly checked out Harvard, where her parents attended, as well as Tufts, Princeton, Stanford, Columbia, Brown, Yale, Wesleyan, Berkeley, and New York University. So far, the family hasn’t shared any further specifics about where she’s aiming to attend or whether a future related to the entertainment industry is on her radar.
Will Malia Obama’s intern gig help her land a spot at her top choice for college? She has a few other pretty solid connections, obviously, but the experience likely won’t hurt.
