Malia Obama has chosen the college she will attend, and she’s decided to keep it in the family. The 17-year old is headed to Harvard University. Both Michelle and Barack attended Harvard law school and it seems their first born is headed in the same footsteps.
Last year, Malia took on summer internship in New York to pursue her interest as a film maker, , and then photos of Malia’s visit to Brown University hit the web so it appeared that the teen was making a move to the big apple. However, white house reps stated that there were many options on the table to choose from including top schools U-Penn, Wesleyan, NYU, Yale, Berkeley, Barnard, and Standford, all of which Malia had been accepted.
Malia will be taking a year off, prior to starting school in the fall of next year. This is a great move for the star who will be graduating the prestigious Sidwell Friends High School this month. The Obama’s can live out the remainder of their residency at the White House, and Malia can ‘breathe’ a little’ now that the spotlight will be ‘dimming ‘.
Kudos to Malia for opting to taking ‘gap year’.
One Love PLUMS!
