Malia Obama, the older daughter of former President Barack and Michelle Obama, will intern with noted Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein in February before heading to college later this year.
Obama will work in The Weinstein Company’s New York office once she and her family return from a post-presidency vacation in Palm Springs, Calif., sources told The Hollywood Reporter. The internship is how the 18-year-old is spending some of her time before she attends Harvard University in the fall.
While in New York, the former first daughter will be in the company of Jay Z, who has collaborated with the studio on two racially charged projects. In October, the rapper announced a documentary about Kalief Browder, who committed suicide in 2015 after being abused for three years by guards at Rikers Island. The other production will see Jay behind the scenes of an NBC miniseries about the Army’s first Black sniper.
