After living eight of her 15 years in the luxury of the White House, US President Barack Obama’s daughter Sasha has taken up an unglamorous summer job serving customers at a seafood restaurant in Martha’s Vineyard.
Sasha was spotted in her uniform of blue T-shirt, khaki banks and hat, ringing up takeout orders for hungry customers of Nancy’s restaurant, a local hot spot.
The youngest Obama is reportedly using her full name “Natasha“ at the restaurant, and is accompanied by six Secret Service agents stationed rather conspicuously on the takeout benches during her shifts.
“She’s been working downstairs at takeout. We were wondering why there were six people helping this girl, but then we found out who it was,” said a server at the restaurant.
Sasha has reportedly been working a four-hour shift early in the morning and her duties are said to include working at the takeaway counter and waiting on tables. She will work there until Saturday, when the rest of the family are expected to arrive for the president’s annual summer vacation.
First Lady Michelle Obama has spoken before of wanting to let her daughters experience as normal a childhood as possible.
Nancy’s has always been a favourite with the Obamas whenever they visit Martha’s Vineyard. The Obamas are said to be friends with Nancy’s owner Joe Moujabber, who set Sasha up with her summer job.
