For most of her life, Chelsea Clinton shied from the spotlight that shone on her parents, Former US President Bill Clinton and his wife US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She spent eight years in the White House, but largely off camera. “For most of my life, I did deliberately lead a private life and inadvertently led a public life,” Chelsea explained on NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams.
Many people shy from attention, but often their anonymity also means they cannot be as effective in life. God’s design for people is that we would influence each others’ lives. Each of us has something to offer someone else. For Chelsea Clinton, that meant losing the opportunity her name recognition offered her. She chose to change that as a result of a conversation with her grandmother.
“My grandmother, who passed away at the beginning of November, had a core adage in her life that ‘life is not about what happens to you but about what you do with what happens to you.’ She recently had been cajoling me and challenging me to do more with my life,” she told Williams. As a result, she took a job with the National Broadcasting Corporation to do stories on community involvement.
