Chelsea Clinton was born on the 27th of February, 1980. She is the only offspring of the former President of the United States of America Bill Clinton and former two-time Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Chelsea Clinton was born in a town known as Little Rock, Arkansas. Her name Chelsea was inspired by a visit to the Chelsea neighborhood in London during a Family vacation.
At the age of two Chelsea was already in the limelight, on tour with her dad Bill Clinton on his gubernatorial race. She famously wrote a letter to President Ronald Regan when she was just 5 years old, in the letter she asked the president not to visit the military cemetery in West Germany where Nazi’s soldiers were buried.
Chelsea attended Forest Park Elementary School and Horace Mann Junior High School. She was a special correspondent for NBC News during the years 2011-2014. She is currently an employee of the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative and has risen to prominence at the foundation, earning a seat on the board. When she moved into the white house with her parents, she was given the code-name “Energy”. In an attempt to shield her from the spotlight the Clinton’s asked the press to limit coverage about her. This instead attracted more attention to her.
Though her Dad Bill is an astute Southern Baptist, Chelsea was raised based on her mother’s Methodist faith and attended the United Methodist church in Washington. She began dancing at the age of 4; she trained at the Washington School of Ballet. In September of 2015, she wrote her first book Its Your World, Get Informed, Get Inspired, Get Going.
In May of 2017, Chelsea released a children bestseller She Persisted. In December 2007 she campaigned for her mother in Iowa soliciting for support for her mother’s bid for the Democratic Presidential nomination. She also made a contribution to her mother’s presidential election campaign in 2016 where she made remarks regarding cannabis drug interactions in line with her mother’s policy on Drug Use.
It was public knowledge that Chelsea was too advance for the 3rd grade and was told by tutors her to skip the grade. When she turned 12 her father was elected President and she attended Sidwell Friends School. Although she was academically above average she pursued other interests especially dance. She attended Stanford University where she first majored in Chemistry with an emphasis on Medicine. Midway through College, she decided to switch to History, graduating in 2001. After her first degree, she proceeded to the University of Oxford where she earned a Master’s Degree in International Relations.
Being a public figure, it has not been confirmed but it is believed that Chelsea had undergone a series of surgical procedures. One area that appears to have gotten a lift is her dentition, at a younger age she was known to use braces but now she has been seen with more symmetrically perfect teeth.
Her hair was very curly in her younger days but now it seems slick and smooth. The most glaring change, however, is her nose. A comparison with her childhood pictures shows her nose appears to have a bigger bridge. Her chin also seemed to have a lift, though not significant but when she was younger, her chin looked wider and bigger but now it seems slimmer, it is also suspected that she had a lip filler.
Chelsea Clinton’s Salary
Chelsea has not worked much her entire life. Her current job is at the family foundation where she sits on the board. However, her brief stint at NBC News as a correspondent garnered media attention after it was revealed that she earned as much as $600,000 for a job role she was seen as unqualified for.
On August 2014, she announced she would be quitting her job at NBC to focus on her philanthropic work at the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
