6 Tiffany Trump Facts You Didn't Know

By Talia Fetner

Despite her 160,000 Instagram followers, Tiffany Trump has managed to be somewhat of an enigma to the public eye. That has remained to be true until tonight, when the 22-year-old will speak at the Republican National Convention in support of her father, Donald Trump.

The world already knows all about Trump's other children, Ivanka, Don Jr. and Eric, who all work for the family business.

Here are some fun facts about Trump's young daughter:

She is an Ivy Leaguer

Tiffany followed in her father's footsteps and attended his alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania. She recently graduated alongside Naomi Biden, Joe Biden's granddaughter, with a major in sociology and a concentration in law. She is also a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. In December 2014, her father told People Magazine, "She's got all A's at Penn, so we're proud of her."

She is extremely close to her mother

Her mother, Marla Maples is Donald Trump's second wife. Maples and Trump were stars in a tabloid scandal when he allegedly had an affair during their first marriage with Ivana Zelníčková. Tiffany was raised alone by her mother in southern California. She loves and supports both of her parents and thinks that family is an extremely important component in her life.

She was named after the store Tiffany and Co.

Tiffany was named after Tiffany & Co., made famous by Audrey Hepburn. The iconic jewelry store is located adjacent to the 58-story Trump Tower that her father completed in 1982.

She has walked in fashion shows

Earlier this year, she walked in the Just Drew show during New York Fashion week. She is lifelong friends with the designer of the label, Andrew Warren.

She is dating a democrat

Tiffany met her current boyfriend, Ross Mechanic at the University of Pennsylvania. His father, Jonathan Mechanic, a real estate attorney, and his son are both democrats. People are speculating if he will make a voting exception for the father of his college sweetheart.

She is a recording artist

When she was 17, she recorded a song titled, "Like a Bird." It is currently available for purchase on Itunes.

She is Instagram famous

Tiffany is a social butterfly. She is a member of the "#RichKids of Instagram." This group of wealthy kids includes EJ Johnson (son of Magic Johnson), Gaia Matisse (great-great-granddaughter of Henri Matisse) and designer Andrew Warren.  The New York Times referred to her affluent group of friends as the "Snap Pack."

She interned at Vogue

Back in 2011, she would go to her internship at Vogue at 5:30 AM and even had lunch dates with Anna Wintour during her time there.
