From Malia to Marvelous: Obama’s Daughter, 25, Takes on Hollywood with a Brand New Name!

Malia Obama,‍ the daughter ⁣of former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, has grown into a confident and talented young⁢ woman. She is now carving out her own path and has even decided to change her ​name.

At the recent Sundance Film Festival,‌ the 25-year-old ‌showcased her directorial debut, titled The Heart. Interestingly, the‍ film’s credits did not include her family surname.

Born on July 4, 1998, Malia’s middle name is​ a tribute to her paternal grandmother ‍who passed away from ovarian cancer at the age of 52. Despite growing up in the public eye as the President’s daughter and graduating from Harvard, Malia chose to pursue ⁣a‌ career in screenwriting.

For her latest project, The⁤ Heart, where ​she served as director and ​screenwriter, Malia used the pseudonym Malia⁤ Ann. ‌She made a striking appearance on the ⁢festival’s red carpet and enjoyed the premiere of her movie.

However, this is not ⁤Malia’s first venture into the film industry.⁤ In 2021,‍ she was part of the writing team⁣ for the series‌ Swarm, which was later streamed on Amazon Prime. With⁣ notable ⁢cast ⁣members such as Billie Eilish and Rory Culkin, Swarm marked⁣ a promising ‍start⁢ to her professional journey.

“Her pitches ⁣were wild and funny, but ‍also incredibly good.⁣ She is an amazing writer,” said Swarm co-creator Janine Nabers about Malia’s⁤ talent in ‍an interview with E! Online. “She brought ⁤a lot to the table and is dedicated to ​her craft.”

Despite her famous family, executive producer of‍ Swarm ‍ Stephen Glover ⁢made it clear that ​Malia was treated no differently from other members of the creative team.

“We can’t go easy on her just because she is the ‌former President’s daughter,” he admitted in an interview with Vanity Fair. “She is down to earth and cool,⁣ and we treat her like any other person. She has great ideas and is just like everyone​ else.”

Proud parents Barack and Michelle Obama have openly expressed their pride in Malia, showering⁤ her with affectionate birthday wishes on her recent⁤ 25th birthday.

“Happy birthday ⁣to‌ this talented, hilarious,‌ and beautiful young woman,” wrote⁣ Barack on Instagram. ‍”Malia, I hope ⁢25 brings you everything you’re looking for and more.”

Michelle ⁢also shared‍ a heartfelt message, saying, “Happy birthday, Malia! I feel so lucky to be your mom‍ and to ⁢watch you become the⁣ wonderful young ‌woman you are today. Love you so much! 💕”

From Malia Obama to Malia Ann, from the ⁤President’s ⁢daughter to a budding Hollywood ⁢screenwriter and director, it is clear that she has a ​bright⁣ future ahead!
