Malia has previously expressed interest in the film industry – she has interned with Lena Dunham’s HBO series Girls and worked as a production assistant on the the CBS sci-fi series Extant, starring Halle Berry.
Malia will reportedly carry out her post-grad internship in the company’s marketing or development departments before attending Harvard University in the fall.

It was an emotional moment for Malia Obama when her dad, President Barack Obama, praised her and 15-year-old sister Sasha during his Farewell Address.
This is the final week of Obama‘s presidency and the 18-year-old First Daughter was in the front row with mom Michelle Obama to watch the address on Tuesday night (January 10) in Chicago, Ill.
“Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion. You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be your dad,” he said about his daughters.

A congrats is in order for Malia Obama who is officially headed to Harvard University!
The 17-year-old daughter of President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will take a year off before enrolling in the Cambridge, Mass school in Fall 2017.
“The President and Mrs. Obama announced today that their daughter Malia will attend Harvard University in the fall of 2017 as a member of the Class of 2021,” the office of the First Lady announced (via AP). “Malia will take a gap year before beginning school.”
Malia reportedly also checked out Princeton, Brown, and University of Pennsylvania before making her decision.
“When I first elected to this office, Malia was just 10 and Sasha was 7. And they grow up too fast,” Obama said during his remarks at the dinner. “Now Malia is going off to college … And I’m starting to choke up.”
The First Daughter Malia Obama has an amazing summer internship – she gets to work on the set of HBO’s hit TV show Girls!
Malia, 17, will apparently work closely with Lena Dunham, creator of the show.
“She’s a fan, and she mentioned that to Lena [Dunham] when she came to the White House,” a source close to the production told Us Weekly. “I’m not sure how long she’ll be interning for. It’s a bit of a trial thing for her. They’ve known each other and discussed for a while. Lena and her get along great.”
TMZ got a photo of Malia on the set of Girls last week delivering coffees to the cast and crew in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg.
Malia Obama, the daughter of President Obama, is pictured in a selfie that mysteriously surfaced online in promotion of the hip-hop collective Pro Era.
“Malia Obama rocking that classic Pro Era tee! | Make sure you get your official Pro Era gear from theproera.com!” the Pro Era Instagram account captioned the photo of the 16-year-old First Daughter.
The photo first began popping up late on Sunday, and began making waves on Monday. Pro Era, aka Progressive Era, is a Brooklyn-based collective which features rapper Joey Bada$$. A rep for Joey told Gawker that they received the pic via “a mutual friend of Malia and the pro era member.”
