Early Life

Malia Ann Obama was born on July 4th, 1998, in Chicago, Illinois to Brack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama who were married in 1992. Malia and her little sister Sasha went to the private University of Chicago Laboratory School in 2008.

In January 2009, she began attending the 5th grade at Sidwell Friends School after her family moved to Washington, D.C. for her father’s inauguration. Malia lived in the White House with her parents and sister until her dad finished his second term as president of the U.S.

Malia was 18 years old when her father finished the term. She was not pampered even though she was the first child. Both the Obama sisters had almost a normal upbringing despite their father’s position.

Before moving into the White House, Malia was in tennis and soccer as well as piano and dancing. Even after the family moved to the White House Obama sisters had to clean their rooms and make their beds.

Around that time, Malia was given an allowance of $1 a week considering if she had done all her chores. She joined Harvard University in 2017 after taking a one-year break from high school graduation.


Malia completed her high school graduation in 2016 and didn’t go straight to college. She took a gap year and interned at the U.S. Embassy in Madrid, Spain. During this time, she was also involved in events related to some protests.

Later, Malia interned at the “Harvey Weinstein Company”. She did an internship as a production assistant on the series “Extend” and on the set of HBO’s “Girls.” Soon, she was spotted at the Sundance Film Festival at a screening of the film Beach Rats. This showed her interest in Hollywood and her sense of fashion is noticeable.

Malia seems to have followed in her mother Michelle’s footsteps being a fashion icon. In 2017 when she moved to Harvard, she was a little uncomfortable adjusting to her dormitory at the University due to her fame.

The famous American actor Donald Glover hired Malia as a writer for his upcoming Amazon series “Swarm”. The actor is quite impressed by her work ethic. Donald Glover reportedly signed an 8 figure overall deal with Amazon studios in February 2021. So it seems that all of Malia’s hard work in showbiz has finally paid off.

With the help of working with director-producer Donald, she has started her career in the filmmaking industry. Since she was a teenager Malia has pursued a television career and those with whom she works consider her a valuable member of the team.

Other Ventures

The Obama sisters have managed their life under the radar after Brack Obama’s tenure as President. But these youth icons garnered thousands of followers around the world. Malia has over 230k followers on her Instagram alone.

Malia received her Bachelor’s degree in Visual and Environmental studies. She expressed her passion for filmmaking before going to college, so her degree aligned with her interest.

Despite that, Malia is 6 foot 1 inch tall and participated in sports during her school days. She won many basketball and tennis titles for performing well during the games. After Brack Obama’s second Presidential term ended Malia and her sister Sasha began making public appearances which led to them both being captured by popular magazines.
