Early life and education
Tiffany Ariana Trump was born on October 13, 1993, at St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is Donald Trump's only child with his second wife, actress and TV personality Marla Maples, whom he married in December 1993. She was named after Tiffany & Company (her father purchased the air rights above the Fifth Avenue jewelry store in the 1980s in order to build Trump Tower). Her parents divorced in 1999 after being separated for two years. She was raised by her mother in California.
She attended Viewpoint School in Calabasas, California. In 2016, she received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania, where she double majored in sociology (with a concentration in law and society) and urban studies, and was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. She began attending Georgetown Law School in Washington, D.C. in 2017.
2016 presidential campaign
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.
She spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention on the second night of the convention. 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."
In the media
Trump is a frequent poster to Instagram, where, as of August 2019, she had 1,000,000 followers. Her Instagram posts frequently include photographs of her with friends or with other people known mostly for having famous parents or grandparents, including Kyra Kennedy, granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy; Gaïa Jacquet-Matisse, great-great-granddaughter of artist Henri Matisse; Reya Benitez, daughter of John Benitez; Ezra J. William, son of an Indonesian real estate businessman; and EJ Johnson, son of Magic Johnson. The group, whose posed photos are edited by Andrew Warren, 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.
