Here's How Malia Obama Is Spending Her Gap Year
Former First Daughter, Malia Obama, graduated from high school last June and opted to take a gap year before beginning her undergraduate enrollment at Harvard University.
The 18 year old has since enrolled in an internship beginning in February with The Weinstein Company in New York City, founded in 2005 and run by Harvey and Bob Weinstein. Her role in the multimedia production and distribution company is still unknown.
The independent studio is responsible for the creation of this year's Golden Globe-nominated "Lion" and "The Founder" as well as Oscar-winning films such as "The Artist" and "The King's Speech."
Founder Harvey Weinstein, a passionate Democratic with a history of donating to the Democratic cause, has held many fundraisers for former President Barack Obama as well as contributed to the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Malia has a history in film production — interning on Lena Dunham's HBO series "Girls" in 2015, and acting as a production assistant on the set of CBS's sci-fi series "Extant," starring Halle Berry in 2014.
