Chelsea Clinton Early life
Clinton was born in 1980. When she was two years, she accompanied her parents as they campaigned throughout Arkansas for her father’s gubernatorial race. She started learning to read and write at a very young age. She started reading the newspaper at the age of 3, and she wrote a letter to President Ronald Reagan when she was only five years old. In the letter, she was photocopied and preserved by her father; she asked President Reagon not to visit a military cemetery in West Germany, where Nazi soldiers buried.

Chelsea Clinton Education and Academic life
She admitted to Stanford University in the fall of 1997 and majored in history. The week before she reached on campus, her mother published an open letter in her syndicated column asking journalists to leave her daughter alone. She arrived at Stanford in a motorcade with her parents, secret service agents, and almost 250 journalists. For her security, bullet-proof glass installed in her dorm windows and surveillance cameras placed in the hallways. Secret service agents in plain clothes lived in her dorm. With the exception of an occasional tabloid story written about her, Chelsea’s four years at Stanford remained out of public view.
Clinton got a B.A. degree in history, with highest honors, at Stanford in 2001. Her thesis was about the 1998 Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland, advised by Jack Rakove.
In July 2001, President Clinton showed that her daughter is pursuing a master’s degree at University College of the University of Oxford. It was the same college where her father studied politics between 1968 and 1970. Her record at Stanford showed that she was a very sharp student.
Arriving at Oxford just after the Sep 11 attacks, Clinton shifted to other American students who were feeling the emotional after-effects of the trauma.
In 2003, Clinton completed her M.Phill degree in International Relations at Oxford. The title of her thesis was “the global fund to fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria,” and she supervised by Jennifer Welsh and Ngaire Woods. After her graduation, she returned back to the United States.
In the year 2011, Clinton was transferred back to University College, Oxford from the Wagner School of Public Service at New York University to complete her DPhil degree in International Relations. She completed her dissertation which was on “the global fund, an experiment in global governance.”
White House Years
On Jan 20, 1993, on the day of the inauguration of her father, she moved into the White House with her parents and provided the Secret Service codename “energy.” The Clintons wanted their daughter a normal child and tried to shield her from the media approach.
While living in the White House, parents of Clinton took care of less participation of their child in public events including state visits. At the start, her parents sent her to Sidwell Friends School, a private school in Washington DC.
Clinton raised in her mother’s Methodist faith. She attended Foundry United Methodist Church on 16th street, NW in Washington and met with other teens on Sunday Mornings to examine questions of faith, philosophy, and issues of her age group. Her parents joined her at the youth group’s parent-teen roundtables. She called a “terrific kid” by an adult group leader.
Apart from the church, her social activities included visits to a Planet Hollywood restaurant with friends and sleepovers in and out of the White House. Her father sometimes joined her and her sleep-over friends for breakfast.
At the age of 4, she attended dance classes in Arkansas, and she continued her dancing training at the Washington School of Ballet for many years.
In her childhood, she was also a good player in soccer and softball, but she quit both of these games to pay attention to ballet dance.
During the last year of her father’s presidency, she assumed some White House hostess responsibilities when her mother was campaigning for the US Senate.
