Watching Malia Obama and Sasha Obama grow up before our very eyes has been a real treat. The Obama girls are a Black political legacy that are a source of pride for Black men and women all over the country.
But if you believe their father, Malia Obama and Sasha Obama won’t be following in their father’s footsteps to the White House.
“Them as teenagers having Secret Service guys follow them when they were going out on dates I think probably has shut down their interest in public service,” Obama said to James Corden, according to USA Today. “They still have PTSD from guys talking into their wrist microphones and glasses as they’re trying to go to a music concert. But you never know. If they decided to do it, obviously I would be extraordinarily proud of them.”
No matter, though, because the Obama girls have plenty of other career opportunities at their disposal. Their parents frequently broker a variety of new deals from animated series to podcasts, and they’re also educated and connected in their own right. Plus, if they really wanted to become heiresses, their father has the net worth to make it happen. And, even after the Obamas left the White House, Barack Obama’s financial legacy has been cemented.
But that doesn’t mean that they don’t act like normal teenagers and young adults.
“They know that I’m all bark and no real bite,” he said to Dax Shepard on the actor’s podcast. “Michelle, she’s the top dog ’cause they’re scared of her. Michelle says that you have to always have at least one parent who the kids think is a little bit crazy and might actually kill you.”
Let’s take a look at what Malia Obama and Sasha Obama are up to these days — and answer all the burning questions you may have about their net worth and boyfriends.
1. Malia Obama Net Worth in 2021
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Malia Obama has a net worth of $100,000.
It’s unclear where the outlet got her net worth figure from, but it’s possible that it’s due to her previous jobs in the entertainment industry.
Though she had an internship on the HBO series “Girls,” and another internship on Halle Berry’s CBS series “Extant,” her biggest headlines came in 2017 when she secured an internship with The Weinstein Company in New York, per The New York Daily News.
It’s also unclear whether Malia Obama had a paid or an unpaid internship with each of the television shows, or with The Weinstein Company. However, ZipRecruiter reports that if Malia Obama had a paid internship, her average salary would be $47,193/year (which the outlet works out to about $23/hour). If she were a top earner, she’d make $91,500/year.
2. Sasha Obama Net Worth in 2021
So far, there hasn’t been any information about Sasha Obama’s net worth available to the public from a reputable site.
But that’s because according to The Detroit News, she’s busy with her studies at the University of Michigan, where she enrolled in 2019.
Little is known about Sasha’s study path, but it’s good to know that she’s studying hard and staying out of the way.
3. Malia Obama Bio
Malia Ann Obama was born on July 4, 1998, in Chicago IL, and is the daughter of President Barack Obama and his wife, the former Michelle Robinson, Esq.
She was raised in Hyde Park, a middle-class Chicago suburb, where her father was a law professor and an Illinois state senator, while her mother was an attorney and the University of Chicago’s associate dean.
When she was 10-years-old, her father became the President of the United States, and her world changed overnight. Barack and Michelle did their best to maintain a sense of “normalcy” for their daughter — and even enlisted the aid of Michelle’s mother, Marian Robinson, to get Malia and her sister off to school — but according to CNN, that can only go so far when your Secret Service detail has to teach you how to drive.
4. Sasha Obama Bio
Natasha Marian Obama — known to the world as Sasha — was born on June 10, 2001, in Chicago, IL. Like her sister, she was raised in the Hyde Park district of Chicago.
When Sasha Obama was seven-years-old, her father became the President. According to Biography, this win meant that the Obama family moved into the White House — and that made Sasha and Malia the youngest White House residents since JFK’s kids (who were three-years-old, and two months old, respectively, when their father became President).
5. Who is Malia Obama Dating?
Malia Obama is 23-years-old and has a boyfriend!
According to News18, the eldest Obama daughter has been with Rory Farquharson since, at least, 2017 (when they were first spotted together).
Farquharson is Obama’s peer at Harvard University, and is a British-born gentleman that comes from “good stock.” His father, Charles, is the CEO of Insight Investment Management based in London. His mother, Catherine, is an accountant for Upper Tribunal, also in London. The Farquharson family owns a $2.2 million estate in Suffolk, England.
And, as it turns out, Farquharson used to play rugby with a certain member of the British Royal Family (Prince Harry) — which prompted The Independent to remark that Malia Obama had a “bizarre” Royal Family connection (aren’t they pleasant?).
6. Who is Sasha Obama Dating?
Because Sasha Obama doesn’t have any public social media accounts and isn’t dating a public figure or an aristocrat, it’s hard to keep track of who she is or isn’t dating.
We do know that in May of 2019, Sasha Obama was escorted to the prom by 17-year-old Chris Milton. Milton’s cousin posted a photo on Twitter of the prom date (even Us Weekly wrote a story about it), but the tweet has since been deleted.
If Sasha does decide to date, she should know that she has the blessing of her father.
“The truth is, I’m pretty relaxed about it for two reasons,” he said in an interview with WDCG radio in North Carolina. “One is [my wife] Michelle — she’s such a great example of how she carries herself, her self-esteem, not depending on boys to validate how you look or not letting yourself be judged by anything other than your character and intelligence. Hopefully, I’ve been a good example in terms of how I show respect to my wife.”
If there’s a major update in Sasha’s dating life, we’re sure to hear about it sooner or later.
