Melania Trump is a successful jewelry and watch designer and former model, but she is most popularly known for her marriage to American billionaire real estate developer and 2016 U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump. Melanie presently has an estimated personal net worth of $11 million.
Though she was born in Yugoslavia, she became a permanent resident of the United States in 2001, which she turned into legal citizenship in 2006.
Melania’s marriage to Donald Trump has been her largest source of celebrity. She met the business mogul in 2004, marrying a single year later. In spite of the fact that her husband has a large net worth himself, there is a prenuptial agreement in place that prevents her from taking advantage of his wealth.
Despite the fact that Melania has a college degree in design and architecture from University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, she chose to pursue a career as a fashion model. With her proportional measurements and beautiful face, it is easy to see why she chose to pursue a field that places high importance on her looks. She has appeared in a variety of publications, including Bazaar, InStyle, Vogue, Front, and GQ.
Melania is heavily involved with many different charitable causes. Some of her associations include the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Martha Graham Dance Company, the Police Athletic League, The Boy’s Club of New York, The American Red Cross, and the Fifth Annual National Love Our Children Day.
Melania is presently supporting her husband presidential campaign. When questioned about her support, she stated, “I encouraged him because I know what he will do and what he can do for America. He loves the American people and he wants to help them.” She told the New York Times, “I would be very traditional. Like Betty Ford or Jackie Kennedy. I would support him.”
