Malia Obama hasn't even started college and yet the 18-year-old already has more work experience than a lot of recent grads. Barack Obama's oldest daughter has two entertainment industry internships under her belt and she's about to start her third.

According to The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab), Malia will spend the summer interning in the Weinstein Company's New York Office before beginning her education at Harvard in the fall.

Harvey Weinstein has held fundraisers for several democrats over the years—including Obama—but Malia actually has the work experience to back up her new gig. She previously interned on Lena Dunham's HBO hit Girls and she worked as a production assistant (opens in new tab) on Halle Berry's CBS show Extant.

It's not totally clear which department Malia will work in, but a source told THR (opens in new tab) that she will probably be in marketing or development. Sounds like a perfect way for Malia to close out her gap year.
