Washington, Aug 6: Even as the US is witnessing an intense, and sometimes even ugly, contest to choose the next occupant of the White House, here is one member of the current First Family who travelled the road from the other end to explore the reality outside the luxurious confines of the official residence of the American president.
Sasha Obama, the 15-year-old younger daughter of President Barack Obama, who is set to vacate the White House next January, has taken up a job at a seafood restaurant on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, the US, the Boston Herald reported.
Sasha, who is known as Natasha, her full name, at the restaurant called Nancy's---is said to be learning the tricks of the service industry at the eatery in Oak Bluffs by working at the cash register, cleaning up tables and also preparing things before lunch, the report said.
The Obama member was being accompanied by a group of six Secret Service agents who looked after her security from a vehicle parked outside the restaurant. When the four-hour shift ended, Sasha and one of her friend, also wearing the eatery's navy-blue T-shirt and baseball cap, carried drinks out for the security officials and left, the Boston Herald report added.
Nancy's is a favourite stop for the Obamas who are known to be close to its owner Joe Moujabber, the report added. Sasha will work at the eatery till Saturday (Aug 6) when President Obama and First Lady Michelle will reach there for a two-week vacation, the report said. This will be the last summer vacation of President Obama who has served two consecutive terms since 2009.
