It may be difficult for some people to tell something about Xi Mingze, but her father Xi Jinping is one of the most popular people in the world, as he has been China’s supreme leader, the President of the People’s Republic of China, since 2013. For a man recognized by Forbes in 2018 as the most influential and powerful man in the world, one might have imagined that every single detail of his life and those close to him would be easily accessible to the public, but this is not so; especially when it comes to his only child Xi Mingze, known in some circles as Xiao Muzi.
Anyway, that ends here. In the following, not only Mingze’s life is briefly described, but there are also other facts worth knowing about the daughter of China’s most popular politician.
Xi Mingze’s Biography: How Old is She?
Many have shown interest in knowing exactly how old Xi Mingze is; if you are one of them, it has been known for some time that she was born in the third year of the decade of the 1990s. Do not be confused, Mingze was born in 1992, on 25 June.
As you already know, she was born to Xi Jinping, who has been President of China since 2013, and his wife Peng Liyuan. No doubt Peng is widely known for her marriage to Jinping, but that is not all she does for them. The woman is also celebrated as a good entertainer. She is a singer who has left her mark on contemporary Chinese folk.
Xi was born in Fujian, a province you will find on the southeast coast of mainland China. It is believed that she received her earliest formal education there. We have not been able to confirm this, but we can say that she studied at the public high school, the Hangzhou Foreign Languages School, where she studied French. She then transferred to the elite university of Zhejiang, where she spent a year before studying at Harvard University. It is said that she studied psychology and English and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the private Ivy League research institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Xi Mingze has kept a low profile; she has even secretly attended Harvard. The reason is not far-fetched – her father’s status made her someone that many people almost always want to keep up with. To enable her to lead a normal life, her parents made it their duty to protect her identity and keep her away from the prying eyes of the public. Xi has always been protected by bodyguards, and from what we have learned, she is a very calm person who likes to read a lot and is not the outgoing type. That made it even more difficult to know some things about her.
