Official at the university say Tuesday was the official freshman move-in day for the class of 2021, but some students decided “to move in a day early, based on travel schedules, athletic schedules, or other needs,” according to a Harvard spokeswoman.

Malia Obama, 19, took a gap year immediately after high school before starting college, a period that gave her the opportunity to intern The Weinstein Company film studio.

The former first daughter has shown quite a bit of interest in the film and TV industry, reportedly working on the set of HBOs’ “Girls” in 2015 and as a production assistant on the CBS show “Extant,” starring Halle Berry.

The former president and his family spent a bit of their summer in the area, returning once again to Martha’s Vineyard, one of their go-to vacation places over the years.

Malia Ann Obama is the oldest daughter of Barack Obama, the U.S. Senator from Illinois who was elected president of the United States on 4 November 2008 and left office in January 2017,

Malia took her family to Harvard move-in day. Former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama are both Harvard alums and helped their eldest daughter moved in on campus.
