Ivanka Trump was born October 30, 1981, in New York City, New York. The offspring of multi-millionaire Donald Trump and now ex-wife Ivana Trump, Ivanka has risen to the status of international model from the age of 16.
While a high school student at Choate in Connecticut, Ivanka had to find work since her mother was only funding her school tuition. Wanting to earn extra money for other fees, Ivanka looked to a part-time career as a model, while her day job was being a student.
