Malia Obama might be the daughter of the President of the United States, but that doesn’t get her out of having to work hard to achieve her dreams.

In a New Yorker profile published in January, it was noted that Malia was interested in becoming a filmmaker. This summer, President Obama’s oldest daughter is starting to see her dreams come to fruition! She landed a gig on the set of Steven Spielberg’s TV show ‘Extant’ starring Halle Berry.

According to TheWrap, Malia performed many tasks associated with being a production assistant.

“She helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take,” add TheWrap source.

Specific details regarding the duration of her job on the California set were not outlined. It is known that her parents flew to California last week to spend the weekend with Malia (sans Sasha) in Palm Springs.

The same New Yorker profile mentioned above also noted that Malia is a huge fan of HBO’s ‘Girls’. Perhaps that’ll be her next on set gig?
