The only daughter of US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has become quite a celebrity in her own right in recent years, and she is being counted on to support her mother's presidential campaign, helping the 67-year-old candidate appeal to young voters.
The $65,000 price tag on her 10-minute speech was a huge bargain, compared to her mother's fees that range between $370,000 and $800,000.
Booked in place of her mother, Chelsea Clinton was paid the handsome speaker's fee for a brief appearance at the university on behalf of The Clinton Foundation. She agreed to a 10 minute-speech, and participated in a 20-minute question-and-answer session and spent half an hour posing for pictures with VIPs offstage.
The Clinton Foundation is a nonprofit foundation established by former US President Bill Clinton that focuses on improving global health and wellness and increasing opportunities for women and girls, among other issues.
