The Untold Truth Of Sasha Obama
Lifestyle - News
Her Real Name
Sasha Obama was only seven years old when her father, Barack Obama, became president. This led to Sasha being thrust into the spotlight, so there shouldn't be much about her that is unknown to the public, but you might not know that Sasha is actually a nickname for Natasha.
Her Childhood Scare
Obama became ill when she was a baby, which her father called “the hardest time in my life” in a campaign video. "Sasha got meningitis when she was 3 months old," he said, adding that “your world narrows to this very small point” when that kind of thing happens.
Starstruck Moment
Despite the fact that Obama is one of the former president's daughters, she is still a regular girl who is extremely relatable and grows up like everyone else. In 2016, Obama attended her first state dinner, and it just so happened that the crush-worthy Ryan Reynolds was in attendance, so it's safe to say she was star-struck.
Her Summer Job
In the summer of 2016, Obama got a summer job, although always accompanied by Secret Service agents. Customers at Nancy's, a seafood restaurant on Martha's Vineyard, may have been served at the takeaway window by a first daughter.
Her Bestie
Maisy Biden, President Joe Biden's granddaughter, is one of Obama's closest pals. Both girls have been in the spotlight since they were little, which appears to have helped the ladies connect, as well as the fact that they attended Sidwell Friends School in Washington and played basketball together.
