Ivanka Trump was born in Manhattan, New York City, to American business magnate Donald Trump and his first wife, Ivana (née Zelníčková), an athlete, model, and socialite originally from Czechoslovakia. The name Ivanka is a diminutive form of Ivana. Trump’s parents divorced in 1991, when she was nine years old. She has two brothers, Donald Jr. and Eric; a half sister, Tiffany; and a half brother, Barron. Trump attended the Chapin School in Manhattan until she was 15, when she transferred to Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut, where she characterized its “boarding-school life” as like a “prison”, while her “friends in New York were having fun”.
After graduating from Choate, she attended Georgetown University for two years, then transferred to the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania, from which she graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in economics in 2004.
Trump speaks English and French. Unlike her brother Donald Jr., she has only elementary knowledge of her mother’s native language, Czech.
