For years, Chelsea Clinton tried to professionally distance herself from her famous parents by working for a corporate consulting firm and as a special correspondent for 'NBC News.'
But in a revealing new interview, the 36-year-old daughter of politicians Bill and Hillary Clinton confessed she has now never felt more proud to be following in her parents' footsteps through her work with the Clinton Foundation.

"While I was [working] on Wall Street, I realized that the things I was most passionate about were the things that my parents were most passionate about, which was pretty frustrating," said Chelsea, who's a new mom to nearly seven-month-old daughter Charlotte.

"I'd worked really hard to find what I cared about, and through that hard work and introspection, I realized that I cared most about the things my parents, and particularly my mom, cared about most," she continued.

After her father left the Oval Office in 1992, the former president, 68, established the Clinton Foundation, a non-profit organization with the mission to "strengthen the capacity of people throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence."
By 2011, Chelsea — who married investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in July 2010 — began serving as Vice Chairwoman of the foundation with the aim to empower women and girls throughout the US.
"I know that I am more able to make a difference now because of how I spent my twenties working in finance. I don't regret that time, but I know that what I'm doing now is the right choice for me today," Chelsea told 'Levo League.'
