It may be difficult for some people to tell anything about Xi Mingze, but her father Xi Jinping is one of the most popular people on earth as he has been China’s paramount leader, the President of the People’s Republic of China since 2013. For a man recognized in 2018 by Forbes as the most influential and powerful man in the world, one would have imagined that every single detail of his life and those close to him would be readily available to the public, this is not so; especially when it comes to his only child Xi Mingze, who is known in some quarters as Xiao Muzi.
Anyway, that ends here. More than just offering a concise description of Mingze’s life, the following contains other facts that are worth knowing about the daughter of China’s most popular politician.
Xi Mingze’s Biography (Age)
Among other things, many have shown interest in knowing exactly how old Xi Mingze is; if you are one of those, it has been established for quite a while now that she was born in the 3rd year of the 1990s decade. Don’t be confused, Mingze was born in 1992, on the 25th of June.
As you already know, she was born to Xi Jinping who has been the president of China since 2013 and his wife Peng Liyuan. Without a doubt, Peng is widely known for her marriage to Jinping but that isn’t all she has going on for her. The woman is also vastly celebrated for being a fine entertainer. She is a singer who has left her marks in Chinese contemporary folk.
Xi was born in Fujian, a province you will locate at the southeast coast of mainland China. It is believed that she received her earliest formal education there. While we haven’t been able to confirm that, we can tell that she was a student of the public high school, Hangzhou Foreign Languages School, where she studied French. Thereafter, she moved on to the elite Zhejiang University where she spent one year before becoming a student at Harvard University. It is said that she studied Psychology and English, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree from the private Ivy League research institution in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
To a large extent, Xi Mingze has kept a very low profile; even, she attended Harvard secretly. The reason for this is not far-fetched – the status of her father made her someone many people would like to keep up with almost always. In order to make it possible for her to have a normal life, her parents made it a duty to guard her identity and keep her away from the prying eyes of the public. Xi has always been protected by bodyguards and from what we’ve learned, she is a very quiet person who likes reading a lot and not the outgoing type. This has made it even more difficult to know some things about her.
