Melania Trump was born on April 26, 1970 and is 46 years old. Her husband, Donald Trump, is 70 years old.

In the early morning of November 9, 2016, American businessman, Donald Trump, was elected the 45 President of the United States. Defeating the Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, Trump won 290 of the electoral votes. Celebrating his victory, Trump spent the evening in New York with his wife, Melania Trump, who will assume the role of First Lady beginning January 20, 2017.

As many are just beginning to get to know Trump, here are 10 things to know about America’s new First Lady:

1. Trump was born in Melanija Knavs in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. Then, when she was 18, she moved to Milan, Italy. Finally in the mid-1990s, she moved to the US and became a permanent resident in 2006.

Junior Claire Obeck claims, “I think it is really interesting that the First Lady is born outside of the US. However, I do not think it will affect her ability to be an efficient First Lady. John Quincy Adams’ wife was also not born in the US, but she was still a great First Lady.”

5. Trump has been featured on the cover of some of the world’s top tier fashion magazines. These magazines include Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair, InStyle Weddings, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and GQ. Despite Trump’s feature on the magazine, Vogue chose to endorse Clinton’s campaign.

6. A loyal wife, Trump remained by her husband’s side through the ups and downs of the campaign. Trump has announced that cyberbullying will be her primary platform throughout her husband’s presidency.

Sophomore Emily Abdoney claims, “I love how Melania chose cyberbullying as her platform because I think it is a serious problem in our society. People have gotten too mean on social media, and it is something that needs to be changed.”
