It looks like talent runs all through the Obama family as Donald Glover has tapped Barack and Michelle’s eldest daughter, Malia Obama as a writer on an upcoming series and is already praising the former First Daughter’s skills.

In an interview with Vanity Fair during Thursday’s season 3 premiere of his hit FX show Atlanta, the 38-year-old artist explained that “She’s just like, an amazingly talented person. She’s really focused, and she’s working really hard.”

The Atlanta writer tapped the 23-year-old Harvard grad to share her experiences for a new Amazon series potentially titled Hive, a show reportedly about a Beyoncé-like character. Malia previously held internships on Lena Dunham’s Girls and at the Weinstein Company before landing a role as a production assistant on Halle Berry’s CBS sci-fi drama series Extant.

“I feel like she’s just somebody who’s gonna have really good things coming soon,” he added on up and coming writer. “Her writing style is great.”

And if you’re wondering how proud Barack and Michelle are of their baby girls, they’re absolutely excited for their next chapter.  “I almost forgot that this year, this summer, they’re going to be 23 and 20,” the 58-year-old former First Lady said of her daughters, Malia and Sasha in an interview with CBS This Morning last year. “I mean, I’m just like ‘Stop there.’ I don’t even have teenagers anymore. So I am excited for her next chapter. That’s why I want to be as excited as every parent.”
