Assistant to the President of the United States for Communications Jen Psaki: biography, personal life, career
Jennifer Psaki was the official representative. She is one of the most famous American politicians. The name Jennifer constantly appears in the press, and it is often called the "clown."
Jen Psaki (USA) was born on 12/01/1978 in Connecticut, in the city of Stamford. Parents had different roots - Polish and Greek. Jennifer's father, Dimitris Psakis, came to the United States from Greek Messenia. Immediately changed the name to James Psaki. Started working as a simple builder. Gradually, he became the developer and owner of his own construction company, which built apartment buildings. Then he retired.
Mother Jennifer - Elin Midway - the famous psychotherapist. She is still working in Greenwich. Jennifer has two younger sisters - Kristen and Stephanie.Interestingly, her parents were still married, despite different political beliefs. Father Jennifer was always a conservative and supported the Republican party. Mother also held opposing views. She is a liberal and a supporter of the Democrats.
Jennifer spent her entire childhood and early school years in Stamford. Then the family moved to Kos-Kob. After some time, once again changed her place of residence to Old Greenwich.
Jen Psaki received an extensive education. First, she studied at the monastery of St. Heart. Then she was sent to Greenwich, to one of the best American schools. She graduated in 1996. During her studies she was seriously interested in swimming. Served at school competitions for four years. When Jennifer moved to high school, she was appointed captain of the team. Her successes were small, but organizational skills were simply excellent.
Then she entered the College of William and Mary, a research university. She graduated in 2000. In her student years she was an activist, took an active part in the women's public organization. For two years she was a member of the university swimming team. In 2000 she received a master's degree in English sociology and philology.
Immediately after university, Jennifer got a job as a teacher at the School of the Arts in Washington. Psaki quickly realized that she had chosen the wrong path. Already in her youthful years, she developed a passion for politics. Over time, it has not faded away. Before graduating from the University, Jennifer tried herself on a summer internship, collecting funds for the Democratic Party. Then she continued to work there as a volunteer. During this period, psaki realized that she wants and can participate in the election campaign. And I chose Iowa to start my career.
Jennifer Psaki began her political career in 2001. At first, she participated in the election campaign of candidates from Harkin and Vilsack who were nominated for Democrats in Iowa. In 2004, she became press secretary for John Kerry. Between 2005 and 2006, Jennifer was the director of public relations for Joseph Crowley.
In 2008, when Barack Obama’s presidential campaign was underway, Psaki worked as his press secretary. After the victory of the senator, she remained in the same position, but already in the White House. The press secretary also worked during the next election.And finally, she got the position of “Assistant to the President of the United States of America for Communications”.
Psaki gained popularity not only in the political arena, but also in social networks. Almost all of her statements are becoming commonplace, especially comments on the Ukrainian crisis. The owners of online portals respond to the statements of Jennifer with cool pictures. For example, a US official could not explain where she found the mountains in the Rostov region. At this absurdity, Jennifer claims to be the victim of Russian propaganda.
Psaki constantly gets into unexpected and funny situations. For example, despite the fact that Jennifer always appears in public with well-groomed hair, in good clothes and with properly selected accessories and jewelery, the young lady managed to appear at one of the briefings in one boot. The journalists were just shocked, though, later it turned out that Psaki just hurt her leg.
Jen Psaki, whose position is quite responsible, often indulges in incomprehensible statements about various events in the world.When the attack in Slavyansk on a weapons depot was discussed, Psaki accused federalization of the death of civilians, but without any explanation from which source this information came.
Another case: during a press conference on the referendum of the LC and the DPR, Jennifer argued that the voting took place with the help of "carousel mechanisms". She was not able to answer the questions of journalists about what the process is and how it happens. In one of the following meetings with journalists, Psaki reported that the Russian side applied phosphorus bombs under the Slavic, and called the DPR and LNR militiamen “subhumans”.
Perhaps, due to incorrect or rash statements, the title of a stupid politician, so to speak, was firmly fixed to Jennifer. Part of her sayings began to be distorted in social networks. About Jen Psaki even appeared a series of jokes. But Jennifer is not discouraged and regards such attention to her person as getting a medal for her work.
Jen Psaki, like most politicians, does not like to spread about his personal life. Only a few facts from her biography are known.For example, that Jennifer has a sister, whose name is Stephanie. She lives in Washington and also works in the political sphere.
The spouse Psaki is also working there. She married Gregory Mecher in 2010. He works for the Democratic National Council. In the media there was information that, according to the stories of Jennifer, she always obeyed Barack Obama without question. At home, the situation is similar. The spouse dominates the family.
Psaki likes to spend his free time traveling or at parties. Jennifer is keen on crop and fashion. Psaki's height is about 157 centimeters. Jennifer is a redhead with a freckled face. Character confident and calm. Jen Psaki herself is sure that she took the best qualities from her parents. From her mother, she got the care of social transformations, and from her father, the habit of hard work.
