Early Life of Hope Hicks
Hope Hicks was born to Paul Hicks II and Caye Hicks in the wealthy suburb of Greenwich, Connecticut. She came from a well-off family and has a sibling Mary Grace.
Hope Hicks started her modeling career as she stepped her teens. She has done several modeling contracts for various brands and was also immensely popular for being the Ralph Lauren model. She has featured in magazines like The Washington Post, Marie Claire, and Cosmopolitan. In addition, she was on the cover of the famous novel “The IT Girl.”
However, it was not at all planned to enter politics. Although in a recent interview Hicks quoted that in one of the Easter dinners while she was 12 she had casually mentioned that apart from modeling she has a sheer interest in politics.
She pursued her graduation from Southern Methodist University in Dallas where she played Lacrosse for four years consecutively. She was termed as a highly intelligent player who was very good while working in teams.
After graduating from college in 2012 Hope Hicks decided to get into Public Relation like in her family. Her father, Paul Hicks was a top executive at a PR Firm. He still works as the managing director of the Glover Park Group.

Association with Republican Party nominee Donald Trump

Interestingly one of her first work was to issue statements in defense of his previous campaign manager Corey Lewandowski who literally harassed her at the workplace. Yet there was also news that the both of them were really good friends and secret lovers too.
Hope is one of the few younger women to be on the inside chain of Donald Trump and she works closely with him. Not just that Trump is so dependent on Hicks that she even dictates his tweets to him.
Hicks is perfect with her work and that is one of the biggest reasons why Donald Trump is so fond of her because she gets around 250 requests by people to meet The Donald but only she decides who will meet him and manage his professional political career very well. This is also one of the reasons Donald Trump insisted on hiring Hicks in the administration department should he win the elections in November 2016.
Boyfriend and Break Up
The demands and the hectic work schedule of the campaign caused the break up between Hicks and her longtime boyfriend of six years. The name of the boyfriend was not disclosed in the media, but she had very close relations with Corey Lewandowski too whom the Donald fired later after there were several banters with Hope Hicks.

Then, they both got separated after his resignation. Before that, she was dating Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, though he was already married to Alison Hardy. At current, she is single and not married yet.
