How soon they grow up!

First Daughter Sasha Obama reportedly has taken a job at a popular seafood restaurant on Martha’s Vineyard during her family’s summer vacation.

The 15-year-old youngest daughter of President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama is working at Nancy’s, a popular seafood restaurant, where she is using her full name of Natasha, reports The Boston Herald.

The teen will learn the ropes of the service industry at the Oak Bluffs eatery, working at the takeout window, the cash register, busing tables, and prepping the restaurant before it opens for lunch, writes the news outlet:

Sasha was accompanied to her summer job yesterday [Tuesday] by a contingent of six Secret Service agents, who sat outside the restaurant in a large Suburban SUV and on the takeout benches while the president’s daughter waited on hungry tourists. 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.

Nancy’s is a favorite stop for the First Family, who always pop in for a seafood feed when they are on their annual Martha’s Vineyard vacation. The Obamas reportedly are friends with Nancy’s owner Joe Moujabber, which is how Sasha scored her summer gig.

The Obamas’ youngest daughter has been working an early four-hour shift at the busy, 350-seat restaurant, finishing up just a half hour after it opens for business at 11:30 a.m. Word is, she will only be working until Saturday when her parents arrive for their two-week vacation.

People on the Vineyard are reportedly gossiping that Sasha’s non-glamorous summer job may have been some kind of punishment, according to Page Six, but the First Lady has often stated that she wants her girls to understand the value of working hard and achieving a goal.
