Malia Obama Serves as Dad's Official Translator on Cuba Visit

Further proving that she's awesome

Never one to rest on her laurels, 17 year-old first daughter Malia Obama put herself to work upon arriving in Cuba with her parents for the first presidential visit to the country in 88 years.

Her official job? Dad’s personal Spanish translator as he met with locals in Old Havana.

White House photographer Pete Souza snapped an awesome pic of the two hamming it up with a restaurant chef, and we love imagining the conversation that ensued:

Barack: Tell him I loved the chicken.

Malia: It’s “pollo,” Dad. Yeesh.
