See Mama, I could’ve taken a year off before I went to college. If the daughter of the President of the United States can take a year off, I should have been able to do the same. But I guess, living in a caribbean household, that did not exist. Plus, I wasn’t going to Harvard like Miss Malia Obama. Congrats girl! Making us black women look good.
According to the Washington Post, on Sunday, the White House announced that eldest daughter Malia Obama will attend Harvard University
But the Sidwell Friends senior, 17, will not be heading to Cambridge, Mass. this coming fall.
“Malia will take a gap year before beginning school,” read the statement from President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama released late Sunday morning by the East Wing. This means Malia will not attend Harvard until the fall of 2017 as a member of the Class of 2021.
