Melania is the second first lady born outside of the United States, according to the White House website, and the only first lady to become a naturalized U.S. citizen.

An active member of her community, she has served as chairwoman of the American Heart Association, which raised $1.7 million for research. She has also launched her own jewelry collection and previously worked in modeling.

At pediatric hospital Bambino Gesù in Italy’s Vatican City she met with a boy who was waiting for a new heart. When she arrived in Belgium the next day, Melania heard the hospital had found a donor for the boy and celebrated the news in a press statement, saying “my own heart is filled with joy over the news.”

She has used her status as first lady to raise awareness about the dangers of opioid abuse and the devastating effects on infants and unborn babies. Melania traveled to Huntington, West Virginia, where she visited Lily’s Place, a non-profit infant recovery center that helps give infants born dependent on drugs opportunities to thrive.

“Whether she was joining President Trump and other leaders in places like Beijing or welcoming leaders like South Korea President Moon Jae-in and his wife Kim Jung-sook to the White House, she is always a terrific example time of the greatness of America,” the website reported. “Most recently, she joined Second Lady Karen Pence for a trip to Fort Bragg where they thanked military members and their families for all they do for our country.”
