This is a wonderful book that is both informative and inspiring about a shy and skinny girl from Slovenia who may be the new First Lady in the United States. The book reads like a fairy tale. But it is a true story which illustrates that it is not where you start that counts but where you end up.
Everyone thought she was Russian. But she is actually from a small town in Slovenia, a country that most Americans never heard of. Her story is one that is full of coincidences and events that should have never come together although they did.
Melanija Knavs comes from a humble socialist Slovenian family that knew nothing about living the elite life. Melania was never a great student. She didn’t go Harvard or Oxford. She was a very average student. Neither was she a supermodel or a successful businesswoman. Yet today, as she approaches her forty-sixth year, she is one of the richest Slovenians of all time.
Melania never had a career but her story is nonetheless a success story like no other. We know so little about Melania Trump. But this book will tell you everything about her. The book discusses information about her origins and roots, facts regarding her mother and father’s profession in Slovenia, precise information about Melania’s education, her former lovers from Slovenia, how Melania became a successful model only after she met Donald Trump, why Donald Trump still hasn’t seen Melania’s birthplace, and so on.
But there are all the naysayers too. Ivana Trump doesn’t think that Melania is qualified enough to be a First Lady. But Melania believes otherwise. Melania Trump is a very ambitious woman who can take on that important role, if Donald Trump becomes the new president of the United States.
I loved this book from beginning to end. It is a book that should be read by all young women and teen girls.
