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.
However, after growing up, Ivanka decided not to join the modeling world and after graduating from the Wharton School of Business 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. Ivanka then 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 Trump Jr and Eric Trump, Ivanka Trumo co-founded the Trump Hotel Collection, a successful luxury hotel management company. 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.
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. She is friends with Chelsea Clinton (daughter of Hillary Clinton). Ivanka's other friends include Georgina Bloomberg, whose father is Michael Bloomberg (former New York City Mayor and businessman).
Ivanka Trump has a close relationship with her father, who has publicly expressed his admiration for her in several occasions, sometimes in a gross manner where he praised his daughter's body and said that he would have dated her if he were not her dad. Ivanka has likewise praised her father, complimenting his leadership skills and saying he empowers other people.
