The second First Daughter of the Obamas is now a working teenager.

Sasha, who is using her full name, Natasha, landed a summer job as a waitress at Nancy’s, a seafood restaurant on Martha’s Vineyard, reported the Boston Herald.

The 15-year-old is getting a full lesson on the service industry as she works the cash register, cleans tables, serves customers at the takeout window, and prepares the restaurant before the lunch hour rush.

Six Secret Service agents monitor the teenager nearby in a black SUV as well as on benches in the restaurant.

She works a four-hour shift and is usually off the clock shortly after the business opens for guests. The Herald described Sasha bringing out drinks for her security detail at the end of her shift.

“She’s been working downstairs at takeout,” said a server. “We were wondering why there were six people helping this girl, but then we found out who it was.”

The Obamas are frequent patrons of the Oak Bluffs eatery. Reportedly, the friendship between the First family and owner Joseph Moujabber is what aided Sasha in getting the job.

Sasha’s expected to work until Aug. 6, when her parents arrive in town to commence their two-week vacation.

Sasha’s older sister, Malia doesn’t appear to have a summer job. The 18-year-old was photographed enjoying an outdoor concert with her friends in the family’s hometown of Chicago. Malia is taking a gap year before she continues her education at Harvard University in the Fall of 2017.

On the first night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Michelle Obama reminisced about the day her family moved into the White House and how their lives would no longer be the same.

“At that moment I realized that our time in the White House would form the foundation for who they would become, and how well we manage this experience could truly make or break them,” Obama said. “That is what Barack and I think about every day as we try to guide and protect our girls through the challenges of this unusual life in the spotlight.”
