When it comes to being a good citizen, Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, believes there are a few key factors that play into the equation.
Chelsea believes that being a good citizen means being a good member of your family, community and country through various ways. Growing up, Chelsea’s parents enforced the importance of being a good citizen, bringing Chelsea into the ballot box with them each time they voted in local or presidential elections to provide her with a strong example of American participation.
Growing up, Chelsea and her family also volunteered at local churches, art centers and other organizations. “My parents always enforced the adage, ‘to whom much is given, much is expected,’” Chelsea said. “I was expected to give back wherever I could.”
Chelsea believes there are many different ways to engage in being a good citizen, and she thinks it’s important to consider the many different circles of engagement where you could lend your time and voice.
