(Bush, Barbara Pierce) Today, Barbara Pierce Bush is the CEO and Co-founder of Global Health Corps, an organization that is building the next generation of global health leaders and problem solvers who share a common belief: health is a human right. Born into a political dynasty, Barbara and her sister Jenna grew up very much in the public eye. As small children, they watched their grandfather become president; just twelve years later they stood by their father’s side when he took the same oath. They spent their college years being trailed by the Secret Service and chased by the paparazzi. But the tabloids didn’t tell the whole story. In Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life (Grand Central Publishing) the sisters recount how they forged their own identities under extraordinary circumstances, as they take readers on a revealing, thoughtful, and deeply personal tour behind the scenes of their lives, with never-before-told stories about their family, their adventures, their loves and losses, and the special sisterly bond that fulfills them.
