Malia Obama is going to Harvard! Congrats girl! The East Wing of the White House announced the news six days ago. So what’s all the fuss about?
The oldest daughter of the Pres won’t be starting school until the fall of 2017. That’s right, the first daughter is officially taking a gap year (*cue gasps*).
Not an unusual decision for teens, Malia has decided to take a year off before attending the ivy. And the internet has lost all its cool!
Headlines range from “Malia Obama taking a gap year is the ultimate sign of luxury” to “Malia Obama is Taking a Gap Year — And So Should All Students.” Social media is debating the decision, as are teen mags.
Malia has yet to tell us what she’ll be doing with her gap year (although we suspect it will be something wonderful and important), nor has she actually commented on the gap year beyond the official press release.
Well, Malia, we totally support your decision! Do what’s right for you and don’t let the haters get you down. Can’t wait to hear what the next year has in store for you!
