Barack Obama's eldest daughter Malia has landed what many would call a dream internship -- she will be interning on HBO series Girls, which stars Lena Dunham.

The 17-year-old, who celebrated her birthday recently, is said to be interested in pursuing a career in TV or film after she graduates next year.

Malia was spotted hanging out on the set of Girls last week. The President's daughter was pictured sipping a soft drink while the series filmed on location in Brooklyn hipster restaurant, Aurora Ristorante, reported TMZ.

Malia has previously been reported to be a fan of Lena Dunham's hit HBO series, with an article in the New Yorker early last year describing the Obama's as being wary of their daughter's interest in the show at first.

Malia's mother Michelle has also spoken in the past about her daughter's aspirations as a filmmaker.

"Just like her father, she is an avid reader, and she enjoys movies. But she's a freshman, so she knows she has years in college to explore her interest," she had said.

This isn’t Malia’s first foray into the entertainment industry. Last summer, she worked as a production assistant for Halle Berry’s CBS show Extant.
