A Trait I Got From My Parents, From Chelsea Clinton (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, had a great answer to share with us when asked about what traits she has inherited from her parents.

Chelsea feels she got her curiosity from her parents. “Both of my parents are deeply, insatiably curious about the world,” she told us. “They also both have an inveterate need to make a positive difference in the world,” she said, attributing her feeling of responsibility to make change in areas that she cares about—like childhood obesity—to her parents.

“It’s hard for me to say which trait came from which parent, since they are so similar,” Chelsea explained, adding that she also inherited a joy of work and relentlessness from both of her parents.
