Elder first daughter Malia Obama has been seen on the set of Lena Dunham’s hit HBO show Girls in Brooklyn, N.Y., since landing her second television entertainment internship, reports the Daily Mail.

Malia, who turns 17 on the Fourth of July, was on the set of Girls on Thursday at Aurora Ristorante, the Mail writes, citing a report at TMZ. She was observed delivering coffee for the cast and crew and helping block the public from entering scenes during shoots, the report notes.


This is her second job in entertainment. Last summer she worked as a production assistant for Halle Berry’s CBS show Extant.

First lady Michelle Obama has said that Malia is interested in a career in filmmaking. 

“Just like her father, she is an avid reader, and she enjoys movies,” she told People magazine in 2012. “But she’s a freshman, so she knows she has years in college to explore her interest.”

She will graduate next year from the private Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C., and was recently seen checking out New York University, home of the famous Tisch School of the Arts. She also toured Columbia University, which her father attended, in addition to West Coast schools Stanford and the University of California, Berkeley, the report notes.
