Madeleine Albright was born in 1937 in Prague. As a child, she moved with her family to the United States. After studying at Wellesley College and Columbia University, Albright entered politics at the urging of a former professor. In 1993, Albright became the American ambassador to the United Nations, and three years later she was appointed Secretary of State in the Clinton Administration, making her the first woman to have ever held the position. Albright served in that capacity for the duration of the Clinton Administration. Currently, she is a Professor in the Practice of Diplomacy at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service as well as Chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, a global strategy firm, and Chair of Albright Capital Management LLC, an investment advisory firm focused on emerging markets.
