Tiffany Ariana Trump (born October 13, 1993)[1] is the fourth child of US president Donald Trump, and the only child with his second wife, Marla Maples.

Since 2018, Trump has been in a relationship with Michael Boulos, a business executive.

Early life and education

Tiffany Ariana Trump was born on October 13, 1993, at St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, two months before her parents married.[2] She is Donald Trump's only child with his second wife, actress and television personality Marla Maples, whom he married in December 1993.[3] She was named after Tiffany & Company; her father purchased the air rights above the Fifth Avenue jewelry store in the 1980s while building Trump Tower next door. Her parents divorced in 1999 after being separated for two years.[4] She was raised by her mother in California.[5][6]

She has three older half-siblings, Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric, from Donald Trump's first wife, Ivana,[7][8] and a younger half-brother, Barron, from Trump's third wife, Melania.[9]

For high school, she attended Viewpoint School in Calabasas, California, where she graduated in 2012. She then went on to attend the University of Pennsylvania, her father's alma mater, where she graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology with a concentration in law and society, and was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority.[10][11][12] After graduating, she began attending Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. in 2017[13] and graduated in May 2020.[14]

Career

In 2011, Trump released a music single called "Like a Bird". She later told The Oprah Winfrey Show[15] that she was evaluating whether to take her music career "to the next level as a professional".[16]

"Like a Bird" received little media attention after its appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Following Trump's speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention, the song received renewed public interest and was criticized for its use of Auto-Tune-based pitch correction and received generally negative reviews.[17][18]

In 2015, Trump worked as an intern for Vogue, and, in 2016, modeled for an Andrew Warren fashion show during New York Fashion Week.[19]

Her father's 2016 presidential campaign was formally launched on June 16, 2015. During the 2016 presidential election, she joined her father and other members of the Trump family at campaign appearances.[20]

She spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention on the second night of the convention.[21][22] During her speech, Tiffany said of her unfamiliarity with the situation: "Please excuse me if I'm a little nervous. When I graduated college a couple of months ago, I never expected to be here tonight addressing the nation. I've given a few speeches in front of classrooms and students, but never in an arena with more than 10 million people watching."[23]

The 58th quadrennial presidential election was held on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. She voted in New York as a member of the Republican Party.[24]

Personal life

While studying at the University of Pennsylvania, Trump met fellow student Ross Mechanic, with whom she was in a relationship from about October 2015 to March 2018.[25][26] A few months later that summer, while on vacation in Greece with actress Lindsay Lohan, Trump met Michael Boulos, a Nigerian-American billionaire heir and business executive whose family owns Boulos Enterprises and SCOA Nigeria in Nigeria, the country in which Boulos grew up. Trump has been in a relationship with Boulos since 2018.[27][28]

Trump is a frequent poster on Instagram, where she has 1.2 million followers as of September 2020.[29][30] Her Instagram posts have frequently included photographs of herself with friends or with descendants of famous parents or grandparents, such as: Kyra Kennedy, Gaïa Jacquet-Matisse, Reya Benitez, Ezra J. William, and EJ Johnson. The group, whose photos have been edited by Andrew Warren in the past, has been named the "rich kids of Instagram" by the New York Post and the "Snap Pack" by The New York Times and New York magazine.[12][31][32][33]
