The past few years have given us countless glimpses of Donald Trump’s family. However, one family member remains surprisingly enigmatic: Ivanka Trump.
Perhaps taking a note from her father, Ivanka Trump is constantly rebranding herself. She’s been an executive for the Trump Organization, but she’s also headlined her own luxury fashion brand. She’s a published motivational writer, and she’s also served as Advisor to the President and even made a prominent appearance at the G20 Summit.
Even for Ivanka’s biggest fans, this leads to a simple question: who is Ivanka, really?
It’s tough to get that answer these days. As both politician and celebrity, Ivanka Trump has mastered the art of creating her own narrative and hiding how she truly feels.
But that wasn’t always the case. Photos of the early life of Ivanka, born in 1981, give a rare glimpse into her relationship with her parents, her curiosity about the world, and her growing inspiration to leave her mark on the world just as her famous father did before her.
If you want to get a look at the real Ivanka Trump, look no further than these rare photos of her life as a child, teenager, and in her early 20s. These powerful images give us an interesting glimpse of where Ivanka comes from and quite possibly what her future may hold.
