US President Barack Obama’s younger daughter Sasha Obama took up a summer break job at a restaurant in Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, according to US media reports.
The 15-year-old worked at the Nancy’s, a sea food restaurant in the affluent colony. While at work, Sasha used her full name Natasha. She had been learning the tricks of service industry trade at Oaks Bluffs snack bar, handling cash register, busing tables and prepping the restaurant before it opened for lunch.
She worked the early four hours and finished half-an-hour before the busy restaurant opens for business at 11:30 am. Her last working day would be on Saturday (August 6).
Half a dozen security personnel watched Obama’s youngest daughter’s back while she went about waiting for tables for guests.
“She’s been working downstairs at takeout. We were wondering why there were six people helping this girl,” a waiter at the restaurant in Oak Bluffs told the Boston Herald, “but then we found out who it was.”
When her shift ended, Sasha and a friend, who also was wearing the navy blue Nancy’s T-shirt and baseball cap, brought a tray of drinks out to her security contingent, got in the SUV and took off, the Boston Herald reported.
The Nancy’s is a busy 350-seater restaurant, which is regular eating joint for the Obamas.
However, the White House did not make any comments on the incident. The Obamas have been trying to raise their two daughters as average teenage Americans. Shasha and her older sister Malia were seen partying with a set of friends at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago. The two will be attending the Harvard University from 2017.
