Upon completion of her internship, Malia will begin school at Harvard University in the fall. She took a year off after graduating high school last June.

The Weinstein Co., which is run by brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein, is behind numerous acclaimed films, including Oscar-winning movies The King's Speech and The Artist, as well as this year's Oscar contender, Lion. Over the years, Harvey has held several fundraisers for Malia's father, and also supported Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign last year.
