Georgina Bloomberg is the second daughter of billionaire presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg.
She is an elite equestrian who’s raked in thousands of dollars in prize money and has bounced back from breaking her back twice.
Despite their fathers’ political differences, Bloomberg is close friends with Ivanka Trump.
In 2017, she used her father’s private jet to fly to Miami and rescue 40 stray dogs from an animal shelter ahead of Hurricane Irma.
Most people would love to have a powerful billionaire for a father, but that wasn’t the case for Georgina Bloomberg when she was growing up.
In the 2003 documentary “Born Rich,” Bloomberg said “having the last name Bloomberg sucks.” And in 2006, she told The Washington Post that people often chalk her success up to that of her father, billionaire presidential candidate Micheal Bloomberg.
Years later, Bloomberg told Town and Country she’d never say that today.
“I’ve come to have a lot more respect for my parents and my last name and everything that my father has done and how hard he worked to provide a great life for us,” she said. “It’s a last name that now I’m proud of.”
A representative for Bloomberg did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment on this story.
Here’s a look at the life of the 37-year-old equestrian, novelist, and animal rights activist.
