Just because one of your parents is the leader of the free world doesn't mean you can get out of having a summer job. Sasha Obama—who has spent more than half her life in the White House—is working at a seafood restaurant on Martha's Vineyard this summer, the Boston Herald reports.
Going by her full name, Natasha, the 15-year-old started working at Nancy's in Oak Bluffs this week, where she has been bussing tables, prepping the restaurant before lunch service, and staffing the takeout window and cash register.
“She’s been working downstairs at takeout,” a server told the Herald. “We were wondering why there were six people helping this girl, but then we found out who it was.”
Secret Service agents monitor Sasha from a Suburban SUV and Nancy's takeout benches while she's on the job. Sasha's parents (you know, Barack and Michelle Obama) have become regular customers at Nancy's during their summer trips to Martha's Vineyard. Over the years, the family has reportedly become friends with the restaurant's owner, Joe Moujabber, who set the teen up with her new gig.
As to not be mobbed by tourists, Sasha works a four-hour shift—from 8 to 11 a.m. each morning—and clocks out before the actual 350-seat restaurant opens for business. Her summer stint is expected to end on Saturday, however, when the rest of the First Family arrives for a two-week vacation.
“She’s been around for a few days,” a girl working the takeout window told the Herald on Wednesday. “It’s pretty random.”
Meanwhile, older sister Malia seemed to be having a blast at Lollapalooza. Teenagers will be teenagers.
