Just like her high-achieving parents before her, Malia Obama takes her education seriously.
After a jam-packed gap year, she now attends Harvard University, and it is rumoured she hopes to enter the film industry.
She already has some impressive internships under her belt, including on the set of Girls and Extant. She also interned with disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
However, as busy as the 19-year-old is, she still has time for romance, and it looks like there could be an extremely intimidating meet the parents dinner on the cards for one love-struck sophomore…

The former first daughter was spotted kissing fellow Harvard student Rory Farquharson at a Harvard-Yale tailgate, just before a football game began.
19-year-old Brit Rory is known to have attended the super-fancy Rugby School, where he was chosen as Head of School for the academic year 2015-2016.
According to the Mail Online, sporty Rory played golf for the school and – unsurprisingly – also played rugby. In 2015, he appeared as an extra in a video for the Rugby World Cup Opening Ceremony – a video so posh it featured Prince Harry.
A real all-rounder, Rory also apparently has an interest in chemistry, and was a member of Rugby’s chemistry society, the Blue Bunsen Society.
With his dazzling list of accomplishments, it seems like he might fit in nicely with the multi-talented Obama family.

Either way, it seems like he and Barack would have plenty to talk about…
Last year, Barack spoke up about having two teenage daughters dating to a Raleigh, NC radio station, and in all fairness he seems pretty chilled about it:
The truth is, I’m pretty relaxed about it for two reasons.
One is Michelle. She’s taught—she’s such a great example of how she carries herself, her self-esteem, not depending on boys to validate how you look or you know, not letting yourself be judged by anything other than your character and intelligence,
And hopefully I’ve been a good example in terms of how I’ve shown respect to my wife. So I don’t worry about it because they’re really solid, smart girls—young ladies now.
However, the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate couldn’t resist a cheeky -yet slightly ominous – dad joke:
The other reason is because they’ve had Secret Service. There’s only so much these guys can do. These poor young men come by my house and….”
To this the radio said: ‘They [the dates] have no idea -‘
At this, the former Prez laughed and said:
No, they have an idea. I describe for them…

If Rory does turn out to be Malia’s boyfriend, I’m sure he will win over her famous parents.
Unless of course he’s a Trump supporter, which might not go down too well…
