USA POLITICS: Ivanka Trump Biography And Profile

Ivanka Trump is the daughter of real estate celebrity mogul Donald Trump and socialite Ivana Trump. Embarking first on a modeling career in her teens, Ivanka redirected her ambitions and joined her father’s business empire after college.

From 2006 to 2015, she worked alongside her father and two brothers as a judge on Celebrity Apprentice. She is currently an executive vice president at the Trump Organization and founder of her own fashion brand, the Ivanka Trump Collection. She is married to real estate developer Jared Kushner and has three children with him.

Early Life
Born on October 30, 1981 in Manhattan, Ivanka Trump grew up in the limelight alongside her famous parents, real estate mogul Donald Trump and socialite/Czech-American model Ivana Trump. The couple’s marriage dissolved when Ivanka was 10, and she went on to attend boarding school. She was a student at the Chapin school and then later transferred to Choate Rosemary Hall in Connecticut.

Unhappy at Choate but promising her parents she’d keep up her grades, Ivanka decided to try her hand at modeling at age 14. She soon signed on with Elite Model Management and graced her first cover with Seventeen magazine in 1997. She would walk the runways for Thierry Mugler, Versace, and Marc Bouwer, be featured in Elle magazine, and co-host the Miss Teen USA 1997 pageant all by the age of 16.

Joining the Family Business
However, Ivanka soon found the world of modeling to be catty and ruthless and steered her ambitions toward the family business: real estate. After graduating from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, her father’s alma mater, Ivanka spent two years working at a real estate development firm outside of her father’s organization.

After learning the ropes and feeling she could prove her worth, Ivanka joined the Trump Organization and has risen through the ranks ever since. She is currently executive VP of acquisitions and development, working on high profile buildings and resorts. Collaborating with her two older brothers, Donald Jr. and Eric, she also co-founded the Trump Hotel Collection, a successful luxury hotel management company.

From 2006 to 2015, she solidified her celebrity status, appearing alongside her father and brothers as a co-judge on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice.

Outside Projects
Capitalizing on her famous last name and wanting to be a voice for the professional millennial woman, Ivanka published the New York Times Best Seller, The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life in 2009. She has also launched a fashion/lifestyle brand, the Ivanka Trump Collection and its digital counterpart, IvankaTrump.com.

Politics
Ivanka has supported both the Republican and Democratic Parties at different times. In 2007 she supported Hillary Clinton’s presidential run and is a friend of Chelsea Clinton. In 2012 she endorsed Mitt Romney for president. A year later, she and her husband hosted a fundraiser for Democratic New Jersey Senator Cory Booker.

In the 2016 presidential election cycle, Ivanka has played an integral role in helping her father’s White House ambitions. She has actively defended his divisive remarks, to much controversy.

“As a citizen, I love what he’s doing. As a daughter, it’s obviously more complicated,” she remarked.

On July 21, 2016, Ivanka introduced her father at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, before he accepted the party’s presidential nomination.

“Like many of my fellow Millenials, I do not consider myself categorically Republican or Democrat. . .sometimes it’s a tough choice,” she said. “That is not the case this time. This is the moment and Donald Trump is the person to make America great again.”

She also emphasized that her father would champion women and equal pay. “My father values talent. He recognizes real knowledge and skill when he finds it,” she said. “He is color blind and gender neutral. He hires the best person for the job. Period.”

Personal Life
Ivanka married real estate developer and entrepreneur Jared Kushner in 2009. The couple has three children, Arabella Rose (born July 2011) and sons Joseph Frederick (born October 2013) and Theodore James Kushner (born March 2016).

Ivanka converted to Orthodox Judaism in keeping with her husband’s faith. She eats a kosher diet and observes the Sabbath.
