Malia Obama is the eldest daughter of Barack and Michelle Obama. She was born on July 4th 1998 – she’ll be turning 11 this year. Malia likes soccer, dance and theatre arts and takes tennis lessons. On Malia’s 10th birthday, Malia and her family gave an interview to Access Hollywood as part of her father’s campaign for the Presidency. In it we learned that Malia would be excited to decorate her new room in the White House and that she loves ice cream. We also hear that she loves the Jonas Brother’s and was invited by Harry Potter to visit the set of the newest movie!
Malia and her sister have been promised a puppy as a gift by their parents. Unfortunately Malia is allergic to dog dander, so the search for the perfect First Dog has been limited to dogs that are hypoallergenic. And Malia’s mom, First Lady Michelle Obama has also said that they wait until the family settles in their new home before bringing a dog to the White House.
Malia and her sister attend the Sidwell Friends School, a Quaker private school in the DC-area. Sidwell Friends has been a favorite of presendiatial children, including Chelsea Clinton. Also the grand-daughters of Vice President Joseph Biden attend the school.
Malia’s Secret Service nickname: Radiance.
