Malia Obama has accepted a prestigious Hollywood internship with super-producer Harvey Weinstein at The Weinstein Co.
The Weinstein Co., run by brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein, is the prolific independent studio behind such Oscar-winning films as The Artist and The King’s Speech. (It currently has the Oscar contender Lion.) Harvey Weinstein also is a reliable donor to Democratic candidates. He has held several fundraisers for Obama over the years and worked on the Hillary Clinton campaign this past cycle.
The 18-year-old will begin the internship in early February after the former First Family return from their no doubt, much-needed vacation in Palm Springs.
Speaking with People magazine in 2012, Michelle Obama said,
“Malia has expressed some interest in film-making.”
In 2014, Malia helped out on the L.A. set of Halle Berry’s CBS series Extant, which was executive produced by Steven Spielberg. And in 2015, Malia interned on the New York set of Lena Dunham’s wildly popular HBO series Girls.
Malia will commence her studies at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2017.
Malia defines BLACK GIRL MAGIC✨. We wish her all the best!!
