Chiara de Blasio, First Daughter of NYC, Gets ‘Teen Vogue’ Spread
Her brother Dante made headlines this year, but Chiara de Blasio, daughter of New York City mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, will definitely become a star in her own right. She’s already landed herself a feature in the latest issue of Teen Vogue.
The 19-year-old Brooklyn girl got candid with the magazine about wanting to be part of her dad’s plans to change the city and still be her own person. A sophomore at a college in California, she’s inspired both by her dad and mom Chirlane McCray who has also worked in politics. “Seeing my parents be public servants has definitely given me this drive to help fix the planet. I definitely want to be an activist for all the issues I find righteous.”
She started with herself, releasing a really personal video about her struggles with depression and substance abuse. But for tonight, it’s all about dad; she plans to be by her dad’s side when he takes office tonight at 12:01 a.m. I can’t wait to see what else Chiara does. She obviously has a really bright future ahead of her.
