So just how rich is Sasha Obama as of early 2018? According to sources, Obama has net worth of $450,000, however, as she is way too young to have a full-time job, her net worth is mostly accumulated from her parents’ careers, but in 2016 Sasha began working at Nancy’s, a seafood restaurant located in Massachusetts.
Family, Background and Ethnicity
Sasha was born into a family of part-Kenyan ancestry, and speaking about her ethnicity, she is black, with dark brown eyes and black hair. Reportedly, Sasha is 176 centimeters tall and weighs over 60 kilograms. She spent her formative years in Chicago and Washington D.C. and so studied at two different schools.
Early Life and Education
Sasha’s parents have been married since 1992; her older sister, Malia, was born in 1998, and both of the girls were delivered by the family friend and physician Anita Blanchard at University of Chicago Medical Center. She is the youngest child to have resided in the White House, since John F Kennedy Jr. made his arrival there as a baby in 1961. Prior to her father becoming the president, Sasha lived in Chicago, where Barack also worked as a professor. In those years, the Obama girls were busy practicing soccer, tennis, dance, drama, gymnastics and tap, in addition to playing piano. In 2008, the family gave an interview, in which both of the girls were included, however, their father later on said he regretted it, as both he and his wife wished for their children to remain out of the media spotlight. Prior to moving to the White House, Sasha was a student of Chicago Laboratory School.
Sasha’s Life in the White House
Sasha is now a student of Sidwell Friends School, located in Washington D.C., which is the same institution that previous presidential offspring Chelsea Clinton and Archibald Roosevelt attended. During his victory speech, Barack Obama mentioned that he had promised he would get a puppy for his daughters, which would also be taken with them to the White House. However, the choice of the breed was narrowed as Sasha’s sister has an allergy, so they chose a Portuguese Water Dog, which was gifted to them by Senator Ted Kennedy. The girls ended up naming the dog Bo, and in 2013, adopted a second dog of that breed, which was eventually named Sunny. Speaking about her interests during that time, Sasha was still very interested in sports.
Sasha and her family are widely recognized for their charity work. In late June and early July 2016, Michelle, Sasha and Malia went to Liberia to promote Let Girls Learn Peace, funded by the US. The main objective of the organization is to bring access to formal education to girls all around the world. Additionally, they met Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the first female president of a state in Africa, before moving on to Morocco, where they collaborated with Freida Pinto and Meryl Streep on a panel moderated by CNN. After that, they went to Spain, where Michelle spoke about their initiatives.
Private Life and Relationship Status
As both of her parents desired for Sasha’s private life to be kept behind closed doors, we don’t have much information regarding that topic. However, we know that she is still interested in tap dance, piano and gymnastics. Even though she doesn’t have her own accounts on social media, some photos of her celebrating her 16th birthday were circulating on Twitter. As of today, she is mostly concentrated on her studies. Besides that, when it comes to her love life, she’s reportedly single, however, she took a date to ‘homecoming’.
Sasha’s Connection to One Direction
Sasha is a big fan of bands such as Jonas Brothers and One Direction, and she spent her 13th birthday at their concert. Her celebrity crush is apparently the actor Ryan Reynolds, and besides that, she enjoys watching “Pretty Little Liars”. One time, she was spotted yawning while her father was giving a speech, and the video went viral on the internet.
Did Sasha Obama Crash Her Car?
In late 2017, rumours arose on a news website regarding her receiving and later on crashing an expensive Bugatti Veyron, apparently into a lake. However, the story fortunately turned out to be fake. Sadly, throughout her father’s career as the president, Sasha and her family were the subjects of several fraudulent ‘controversies’.
The New House
After the election of Donald Trump as the next president of the USA, the Obama family moved from the White House to Kalorama neighborhood, remaining in Washington D.C so that Sasha could matriculate from Sidwell Friends School. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Sasha’s mother stated that her younger daughter “has a two-room suite and it’s all decked out”, adding that Sasha designed the space herself.
