Chelsea recently tried to justify her jumping from job to job instead of choosing a career and sticking with it. It turns out, she says, that she just doesn’t much care about making money.
“I’ve tried really hard to care about things that were very different from my parents,”Chelsea told the UK Telegraph on June 22. “I was curious if I could care about [money] on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t.”
So, instead of working in fields where she could make a lot of money, Chelsea has claimed she has decided to make a career out of working for her parents’ charitable organization the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
The Clinton progeny said that she just couldn’t get into all those other careers she dipped her privileged toes into. She couldn’t find enough interest in her hedge fund work, didn’t care about her consulting job, is noncommittal about her “journalism” career, and just isn’t interested in working in academia. …
Chelsea seems to sense that most people imagine she has made her way in life thus far by trading on her name instead of her skills.
So, with her work at the Foundation, Chelsea told the British paper that she hopes that over time “I preempt and erase whatever expectations people have of me not having a good work ethic, or not being smart, or not being motivated.”
