Ivanka Trump: A Role Model

There are very few times that I've actually finished a nonfiction book. They just get long and boring and I give up easily on nonfiction, even though I love to read a ton. But sometimes I Google famous people and quickly become fascinated with them.

A few weeks ago, I looked up Ivanka Trump, which led me to her book, The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life. I read that so quickly, faster than some of the fiction books I've read.

Oh my goodness gracious. I don't even know how to explain how cool and amazing and awesome and great and inspirational and wonderful I think she is. She's everything I aspire to be in life and so much more, which is why she's become so much of a role model to me. I know that there are opinions that don't necessarily favor her father, Donald Trump, but I think that if you give the Trump family a chance, or rather, look towards Ivanka's stories, you will truly feel inspired.

She's a businesswoman who manages all of the real estate and hotel management aspects of The Trump Organization, she's a writer, a mother, a former model (something that I've always been very interested in), and the woman behind The Ivanka Trump Lifestyle Collection (mostly jewelry, but also many other things). She graduated from the Wharton school at the University of Pennsylvania (where I'll be this summer!!). She majored in Economics (major I'm possibly considering...). AND, she's 5'11".... I am also 5'11".

Her book details her life story and about her career successes. She thoroughly delves into how although her parents were some of the most influential and wealthy people in the world, she wasn't given things when she asked for them. She worked hard for them and earned what she had. She wasn't given her position at The Trump Organization because of her name, but because she had always dreamed of working in real estate for such a large company like her father's and did everything in her power to get to where she is now. She talks about being competitive and working hard and networking and proving yourself. I aspire to be as hard working and intelligent and as powerful as her someday.

Honestly, if I could meet anyone in the world, Ivanka Trump would most definitely be near the top of my list. It's just so refreshing to hear from a powerful businesswoman who gained her successes while she was still so young. I highly, highly recommend her book to any girl my age that wants to eventually have a career like Ivanka's.


For now, I'm a 17 year old who's still in high school, so of course, I've settled for keeping up with her life and I really think you'd be inspired if you did as well:

Ivanka's not only my career idol, but also my beauty icon! So gorgeous!

 
 
 
 

Anyways, that's me fan-girling over Ivanka Trump. Read her book, you won't regret it!
