Sasha Obama Gets a Summer Job Working the Takeout Window at a Seafood Restaurant
By Antoinette Bueno
Sasha Obama isn't afraid of a little hard work.
The 15-year-old daughter of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama has landed a summer job at Nancy's, a popular seafood restaurant on Martha's Vineyard, the Boston Herald reports. Sasha -- who's been going by her full name Natasha while on the clock -- has been helping out at the takeout window, and is in charge of such tasks as manning the cash register and busing tables.
The youngest child of the Obamas has been accompanied to work by six Secret Service agents, who sit outside the restaurant in a large SUV or on the takeout benches, the newspaper reports. On Tuesday, Sasha and a friend were spotted bringing out a tray of drinks to her security team.
But the summer gig won't last for much longer. Sasha -- who's been working a four-hour shift before the restaurant opens for lunch -- is reportedly only working there until Saturday, when her parents arrive for their two-week vacation.
The Obamas are no strangers to Nancy's. The president frequently stops by the Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, restaurant when in town.
Meanwhile, 18-year-old Malia Obama has been enjoying her summer before entering college. The soon-to-be Harvard student was spotted at Lollapalooza in Chicago late last month -- accompanied by Secret Service, of course -- rocking out to Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat.
Last month, the commander in chief accidentally revealed Sasha has a secret Twitter account, when he took a dig at Donald Trump's unprecedented use of Twitter during his presidential campaign.
"Everybody can tweet, but nobody actually knows what it takes to do the job until you've sat behind the desk," he said. "I mean, Sasha tweets, but she doesn't think that she thereby should be sitting behind the desk!"
"I threaten them that I'm going to buy an apartment near their campus and visit and sit in their classes, but that's an idle threat," she told ET. "Barack and I take great joy in embarrassing our children. We threaten them. Sometimes when you see me whispering to them in a crowd I'm saying, 'Sit up or I'm going to embarrass you. I'm going to start dancing,' and it's 'No, mom. Please don't. Stop!' But we get that. Our kids are as humiliated by us as the next. They take it in good stride."
