In fact, we only recently got a taste of what a teenage Malia is like, and we're already pining for four more years. The 18-year-old has been dancing, singing, and sassing her way through this summer, and it's really giving us life.

While we could wax poetic about everything we love about her dad, here are the top 7 things we've come to love about Malia:

1. She has great taste in music.

When a grainy photo of Malia, with mouth agape and hands through her hair, leaked last year, it caused a bit of a security panic at the White House. But it also revealed a crucial truth about America’s first daughter: She has seriously great taste in music. 

The photo appears to show Malia sporting a t-shirt for Pro Era, a Brooklyn-based hip-hop collective. The group, which includes artists like Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly, and Kirk Knight, quickly posted the photo to their Instagram, bragging, "Malia Obama rocking that classic Pro Era tee!"

While it hasn't been 100% confirmed that Malia's in the photo, she’s proven her A+ music taste as a long-time supporter of Chance the Rapper. In fact, her love of the artist brought her to Lollapalooza, where this time around she proved…

2. She can twerk like a maniac.

Think being the president's daughter means you can't get down at a concert? Think again. Malia twerked not once, but twice, for the cameras at this year's Lollapalooza, proving that she really couldn't care less what you think about her. 

You go girl.

3. She casually hangs out with Beyoncé.

Shortly after TwerkGate 2016, Malia ran into America's true royalty — Queen Bey — at the Made in America music festival. 

The first daughter is definitely a Beyoncé fan. (Exhibit A: Her family quickly grabbed tickets to the artist's first show after Blue Ivy's birth.) Yet, Malia somehow kept her cool during the run-in, and simply went in for a friendly hug. If only we were that smooth at 18. 

In other news from this summer's festival circuit, Malia showed the world that…

4. She definitely gets blazed.

People lost their collective shit after Radar Online published a video of Malia at Lollapalooza, sparking up something that looks suspiciously like a joint. A Snapchat video allegedly captured the 18-year-old dancing, singing,  and yes, smoking. A few weeks later, Perez Hilton published photos of the eldest Obama daughter at a party with a bong prominently displayed. 

Though the gossip site deemed the photos "scandalous and wild," it looks like… pretty normal teenage behavior to us? Especially considering her dad took more than few hits in his youth, and still became the president of the United States of America. 

Now, is anyone down for a family smoke sesh?

5. She also has a sense of humor about it.

Hidden in the back of that infamous bong picture is Malia's perfectly tongue-in-cheek message to her haters: Smoking kills. 

The teenager sported a t-shirt emblazoned with the message while attending her second music festival of the month — Jay-Z's Made in America. While gossip blogs recoiled at the "hypocrisy" of the shirt, other outlets heralded it for what it truly is: some seriously skillful trolling.

Subtly throwing shade at the media while rocking a festival-chic outfit? We give that a perfect 10.

6. She (probably) played beer pong on her college visits.

While touring the top colleges in the country (think Brown, Columbia, Harvard, Princeton, and Stanford), Malia made time for a storied college tradition: beer pong. 

Tweets from students at a Brown University party, screenshotted by BuzzFeed News, claim Malia partook in the age-old game.

"Malia Obama was taking shots and playing beer pong at a party last night LOL," read one tweet from October 11. 

"Saw Malia Obama playing beer pong at a party last night. #Casual," read another. 

A Snapchat from the same night, obtained by The Daily Caller, shows Malia standing suspiciously close to some perfectly-arranged red solo cups — if not actually playing. But we're going to guess the Snapchat sender — who spelled the first daughter's name "Maila" — had definitely lost a few games.

7. Oh, and she still got into one of the best colleges in the country.

Let’s not forget that — while handling a move to The White House, growing up in the national spotlight, and yes, indulging in few teenage vices — Malia also managed to get accepted into Harvard University. She starts next fall, after taking a gap year while her dad finishes out his term.

Despite criticism from right-wing outlets, Malia Obama might just be the best example a young woman can ask for: A poised, confident, successful young woman who knows it's OK to let loose.
