In March, Donald Glover confirmed that he had given Obama her first post-graduate job as a writer for his new Amazon series, saying she is “astonishingly talented” and “really focused.”

The multihyphenate, who is also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, was at the season three premiere of “Atlanta” when he shared that he recruited the Harvard University graduate to work in the writer’s room on his latest project.

“She’s just an incredibly talented person,” Glover, 38, told Vanity Fair from Obama. “She’s very focused and she works very hard.”

The actor is writing and producing the upcoming Amazon series – reportedly titled “Hive” – which is about “a Beyoncé-type character.”

Glover has not revealed how Obama — who interned on Lena Dunham’s HBO series “Girls” in 2015 and The Weinstein Company in 2017 — got the job after graduating from college last year.

His younger brother Stephen Glover is also working on the upcoming Amazon project, and he said they were interested in “hearing her stories and having her work with them,” suggesting they may have approached her about the position.

Glover believes Obama has a promising future in the industry, telling the publication, “I have a feeling she’s just someone who’s going to do some really good things soon.”

“Her writing style is great,” he added.

Obama, who moved to Los Angeles for her first Hollywood performance, also received praise from Stephan

The ‘Atlanta’ Co-Writer and Executive Producer praised her work ethic and ideas and said they are happy to have her on the team because of her perspective.

“Donald always says that perspective is important, and people with different perspectives are important to a writer’s room. And she definitely has a unique perspective on everything,” he told Vanity Fair.

“So we wanted to hear her stories and let her work with us. By listening to her stories and involving her, we came up with a lot of good ideas.’

When asked how he turns down Obama’s pitches, he made it clear that she doesn’t get special treatment in the writer’s room because of who her parents are.

“Well, you know, we just hurt her. We can’t be easy on her just because she’s the [former] daughter of the president,” Stephan joked.

“No, she’s very down-to-earth and cool. So it’s not a problem at all,” he added. ‘She has a lot of good ideas. She is amazing. She’s an ordinary person, just like everyone else.’

Glover didn’t comment on whether Obama is accompanied by bodyguards when she’s at work, but he did describe her days in the writer’s room as a therapy session.

“We just talk about how we feel and what’s going on in our own lives, and so our work and all the shows we do get very personal that way,” he said.

‘And at the same time it’s a lot of fun. We talk about everything and are honest about things and come up with all kinds of ideas.’

Obama’s younger sister, Sasha, 20, has also moved to Los Angeles and is attending the University of Southern California after transferring from the University of Michigan.

DailyMail.com exclusively revealed in April that Sasha is dating Clifton Powell Jr., 24, the son of ‘Ray’ actor Clifton Powell.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama, 58, was born and raised on Chicago’s South Side, while President Obama, 60, has lived and worked in the city, where the family still owns a home, occasionally since the late 1980s.

Powell and Sasha are said to have met after she moved to the West Coast, after she dropped out of the University of Michigan to transfer to USC.

The Obama girls have largely avoided the spotlight, especially since their father’s presidency came to an end in early 2017.

Months after her family left the White House, Malia — who had taken a year off from school — enrolled at Harvard University. She graduated in the spring of 2021.

She has long been interested in filmmaking, interning on the set of Extant in high school and with The Weinstein Company in 2017 before landing her current role with Glover.
