The First Family returned from their vacation on Martha’s Vineyard Sunday evening, after a few really tough weeks for Malia Obama, the President’s oldest daughter.
Malia Obama never wanted to be in the spotlight…she was pretty much born into it. So when she was caught on camera dancing and smoking weed, conservatives went crazy and called her every name in the book. But basically, she was being a normal teenager.
And while Malia is off to college like a normal teenager, she will be taking a bit of a detour. She will be attending Harvard, but not until the fall of 2017, opting to take a gap year before beginning her studies. Malia Obama would graduate in 2021 if she takes the traditional four-year route.
Malia’s parents have discussed the college search often, and Malia Obama appears to be following in their footsteps: Both the president and first lady Michelle Obama attended Harvard Law School.
Seven other presidents attended Harvard: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, George W. Bush, Rutherford Hayes, John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt.
Taking a gap year is probably a great idea for Malia, as her dad will be out of office, and hopefully some of the craziness surrounding her will stop.
