America will soon have a first lady who possesses class, style, and a quiet kindness. Melania Trump is far more than the president-elect’s “trophy wife,” as many in the mainstream media are implying. She is an accomplished woman in her own right.
The first foreign-born first lady since Louisa Adams had a long and successful career before she met Donald Trump. She worked hard to rise from her humble beginnings and to get into a top-notch university, Q Political notes.
When people think of Melania Trump, the first thought that likely pops into their minds is of her beauty, but there is a side to Mrs. Trump few have ever taken the time to get to know, and they should.
Liberal journalists have dubbed Melania Trump as merely a “mannequin.” They seem to condemn her for staying largely off the campaign trail in order to stay home and raise the young son she and the Republican have at home, 10-year-old Barron.
The value of being a good mother is apparently lost on the liberal hordes in the mainstream media. Perhaps if they had spent more time parenting, their delicate little snowflakes would not be rioting in the streets and frantically searching for a safe space because they have never learned how to lose gracefully.
Here are some fact about the future first lady that EVERYONE should know!
1 – She was born Melanija Knavs on April 26, 1970 in the small Slovenian town of Sevnica. After moving from the railroad town, she ultimately altered the spelling of her name after embarking on a modeling career.
2 – The Knavs were a working class family in the Communist country once part of Yugoslavia. Melania’s father, Viktor Knavs, worked as a chauffeur for a mayor in a nearby town until landing a job as a car salesman at a government-owned car lot.
3 – Melania’s mother, Amalija Ulčnik, worked at a sewing pattern factory. She made children’s clothes at work and also made clothing for herself and her two daughters at home.
5 – Melania Trump, thanks to her mother’s sewing pattern expertise, learned how to draw and sketch her own clothing designs. Her mother and sister Ines would often sew the patterns she created when making clothing for the trio of women.
6 – Mrs. Trump also learned how to make her own jewelry. She, her mother, and her sister opted to wear what they created instead of store bought clothing.
7 – She started modeling when she was 16 and won a modeling contest. The test photos taken of her by Stane Jerko ultimately led to her being signed with a modeling agency in Milan.
8 – Although her modeling career was off to a good start, Melania still wanted to become a designer. She applied to the School of Architecture at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia.
9 – The future first lady was one of the few women able to pass the school’s notoriously difficult entrance examinations. She was known as a diligent student with no vices who spent the bulk of her time studying or taking modeling gigs for extra money.
10 – She earned a degree in design and architecture at the University of Ljubljana while flying off to both Paris and Milan for modeling shoots. She decided to take her career to the next level and move to the United States.
11 – She moved to New York in 1996 after securing a modeling contract with an American agency. She struggled to find work because those in the industry considered a 26-year-old woman “too old.”
12 – Her American modeling break eventually came, and she was ultimately placed on the covers of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, British GQ, In Style, New York Magazine, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Allure, Self, Glamour, Vanity Fair, and Elle.
13 – When she met Donald Trump at a party in NYC, she turned him down when he asked for her number, as he was at the party with a date. Instead, she told him he could give her his number. Trump gave her all of his numbers and a week later, Melania finally called and the pair soon began dating. The rest is history.
