In just a few short weeks, Malia Obama, whose 18th birthday is July 4, is scheduled to head to Spain for a summer internship at the U.S. Embassy, according to Fox News Latino:
After graduating from Sidwell Friends School, she reportedly decided to take a sabbatical year before starting at Harvard University in the fall of 2017.
American embassies often take State Department interns during the year, usually recent college graduates. According to ABC, Malia’s decision to intern in the Spanish capital may be related to the Obamas’ friendship with the U.S. ambassador in Madrid, James Costos, and his romantic partner of 14 years, interior designer Michael S. Smith.
Costos was one of President Obama’s top donors during his reelection campaign in 2012. Before being appointed ambassador, he was a corporate executive in the retail and entertainment industries. Smith was commissioned to redecorate several rooms of the White House for Obama, according to ABC.
The eldest First Daughter’s Spanish must be pretty good. Who could forget her serving as translator for her father in Cuba?
The internship could start as soon as Obama’s official visit to Spain (July 9 to 11) is over, the report says.
