The 18-year-old model and radio host spoke to Chelsea about her time in the White House and female empowerment. Check out a sneak peek:
On growing up in the White House: “I’m really grateful to my parents in that I think it was just about as normal as possible in that we had dinner together every night and my parents always welcomed my friends to come over and my friends would spend the night and we would play hide-and-go-seek and like watch movies and they just tried to make it a normal home. I think…I never forgot, though, that it was also really extraordinary and I would come home from ballet class or school or a friend’s house and I would walk into the White House and I always was aware of being part of this extraordinary history and I felt a responsibility to be respectful of that history,”
On female empowerment: “I think it is important for any group of people that historically have been marginalized or not given a voice are given a voice, are supported in having our voices heard whether that is women or minority communities or the Native American community here in the United States or the LGBT community; and I think those of us who have been privileged by history, by circumstance, whether the color of our skin or gender, have a responsibility to listen when people are raising their voices and being included in the conversation when historically they haven’t been.”
