Her Resume Wasn’t Completely Accurate
According to CNBC, the official bio on Melania Trump’s website claimed she had obtained a degree in architecture and design in Slovenia (her country of birth). Her official bio, however, did not specify which university she obtained the degree from. Sometime after July of this year, however, Melania Trump adjusted the official bio to claim she had “paused her studies” in order to “advance her modeling career in Milan and Paris.” Her bio does not mention whether she completed the degree or will resume the degree.
Blaz Matija Vogelnik was the name of a professor at Slovenia’s University of Ljubljana who claims to have briefly taught Melania Trump for a period of time.
“She hasn’t finished university, at least not in Ljubljana. My personal opinion is that, because she was very beautiful girl… I believe that she realized that she could gain more with that, than to have long studies.”
Blaz Matija Vogelnik went on to tell CNBC that Melania passed rigorous testing in order to gain entry to the university. He believed her “IQ was very high.” Regardless of if Melania has a high IQ, the professor seemed to speculate that once she realized she could use her looks to further herself, she no longer used her alleged high IQ to further herself. It is, however, up for debate as to whether or not it takes a very high IQ to realize you can further yourself in the world with “beautiful looks.”
