In the extended interview, SIDEWALKS host Lori Rosales talks to Jenna Bush Hager about growing up with a grandparent and father as United States Presidents, her transition from teacher to correspondent on NBC’s “Today,” and, as part of the promotional campaign, working with the Propane Education & Research Council to provide a timely reminder of the importance of school bus safety and the need for more energy-efficient buses.
Born in Dallas, Texas, Jenna Bush Hager is the daughter of the 43rd U.S. President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush and a granddaughter of the 41st U.S. President George H. W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush. She is a teacher, author, an editor-at-large for “Southern Living” and Contributing Correspondent for NBC’s “Today.” Hager’s first book, “Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope,” is both the true story of a 17-year-old single mother living with HIV in Latin America, and a call to action for kids of all ages to make a difference in the fight against poverty, abuse, and HIV/AIDS. Her next books, “Read All About It!” and “ Our Great Big Backyard,” are picture books co-written with her mother. In 2011, Hager was honored as one of Glamour magazine’s Women of the Year alongside her mother and twin sister, Barbara.
