About Chelsea Clinton

Clinton was born during her father's first term as governor of Arkansas in Little Rock, Arkansas. She went to public schools until he was elected president and the family moved to the White House, where she started attending the exclusive Sidwell Friends School. She graduated from Stanford University with a bachelor's degree and acquired master's degrees from the University of Oxford and Columbia University, as well as a doctorate in international affairs from the University of Oxford in 2014. In 2010, Clinton married Marc Mezvinsky, an investment banker. They have two sons and a daughter.

Clinton campaigned heavily on American college campuses for her mother's Democratic presidential nomination candidacy in 2007 and 2008, and she was introduced at the Democratic National Convention in 2008. She played a similar role in her mother's 2016 presidential campaign, appearing in over 200 public events as her surrogate and presenting her at the Democratic National Convention for the second time.

Clinton has co-authored best-selling children's nonfiction books and articles and opinion pieces for major news agencies. She has also co-authored an academic textbook for adults on global health policy. She has garnered a slew of accolades and awards.

Clinton has worked for McKinsey & Company, Avenue Capital Group, and New York University. He sits on the School of American Ballet boards, the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative, Common Sense Media, Weill Cornell Medical College, and IAC/InterActiveCorp, among others.

Early Life

On February 27, 1980, Clinton was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, to Hillary and Bill Clinton. Her name was inspired by a trip to London's Chelsea district during a Christmas break in 1978. Bill observed, "If we ever have a daughter, her name should be Chelsea," Hillary said after hearing Judy Collins' 1969 recording of Joni Mitchell's "Chelsea Morning."

Clinton accompanied her parents on a campaign trip across Arkansas for her father's governor candidacy when she was two years old.

She began reading and writing at a young age. Clinton claims that she began reading the newspaper at three and wrote President Ronald Reagan a letter when she was just five years old. In the letter, she requested President Ronald Reagan not to visit a military cemetery in West Germany that contains the graves of Nazi troops, which her father photocopied and saved. Clinton attended Little Rock public schools Forest Park Elementary School, Booker Arts and Science Magnet Elementary School, and Horace Mann Junior High School. She didn't go to third grade.

Clinton was raised in her father's Southern Baptist faith as a youngster, then attended her mother's United Methodist Church as an adult.

Career

Clinton joined the consulting company McKinsey & Company in New York City in 2003, and then in late 2006, she joined Avenue Capital Group. She was a co-chair for the Clinton Foundation's fund-raising week and later became Vice-Chair of the organization. She is a member of the School of American Ballet's board of directors and IAC's board of directors. Clinton was appointed to the board of directors of Expedia Group in March 2017.

Clinton was appointed as a special correspondent by NBC in November 2011.

One of her responsibilities included reporting for NBC Nightly News and Rock Center with Brian Williams on stories about "Making a Difference." A three-month contract permitted her to work for the Clinton Foundation while continuing her school. Clinton made his first appearance at Rock Center on December 12, 2011. Clinton's contract with NBC was renewed in February 2012, despite some unfavourable evaluations for her work. Rock Center aired its final episode in May 2013, and she left the network in August of that year. For her employment at NBC, Clinton was reportedly paid $600,000 per year.

Clinton is the author of five picture books for children, two of which were successful sellers, and she also co-authored an academic work on global health policy. She's also authored several articles and opinion pieces that have appeared in prominent publications such as CNN, Time, Huffington Post, Refinery 29, and others.

Clinton debuted the "In Fact with Chelsea Clinton" podcast on iHeartMedia's iHeartPodcast network in April 2021.

Personal Life

Clinton married investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in an interfaith ceremony at the Astor Courts estate in Rhinebeck, New York, on July 31, 2010. Even though he is Jewish, Clinton remained a Methodist and did not convert to Judaism. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky and Edward Mezvinsky, Mezvinsky's parents, are both former members of Congress who were raised in the Conservative Jewish tradition. In the 1990s, the Clinton and Mezvinsky families were friends, and their children met at a Renaissance Weekend resort on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. They were first believed to be dating in 2005, and in 2009, they got engaged during Thanksgiving weekend.

The pair lived in New York City's Gramercy Park neighborhood for three years after their wedding before purchasing a $10.5 million condominium in Manhattan's NoMad district.

On September 26, 2014, their first child, a daughter called Charlotte, was born.

Aidan, their first son and second child, was born on June 18, 2016.
