Being A Teenager In The White House, From Chelsea Clinton (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

As a teenager growing up in the White House, Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, had some great memories to share with us about her unique experience.

“I was always deeply aware that I was living in history,” she told us. When Chelsea would come home from school or ballet, she would walk through the historic Diplomatic Receiving Room, which she always realized was unique for a teenage girl. “But then I would have dinner with my parents at the kitchen table every night!” she laughed, pointing out the normalcy.

Chelsea’s parents emphasized the importance of her having a normal life as possible, so she didn’t often attend major dinner parties with guests or diplomats.

“My parents were very firm about me always getting my homework done,” Chelsea laughed, “but I’d get to attend special musical performances and shows sometimes.”
