Ivanka Trump Studies Greek Mythology During Coronavirus Pandemic

Presidential adviser Ivanka Trump said Tuesday she’s mostly working from home during the coronavirus outbreak while also caring for her three children, learning to play guitar — and now studying Greek mythology.

Ms. Trump said she has been using the time “to expand my own mind and explore things I normally wouldn’t have prioritized.” That includes free online courses in Greek and Roman mythology, and learning to play the guitar.

“I’m re-reading ‘The Odyssey,’ and started to learn to play the guitar and now I’m really working on it, as I sit with my kids and when they’re asleep or napping. That’s what I’m doing,” Ms. Trump told interviewers.

The president’s daughter explained to The Washington Times that “It’s a unique time, but I’m trying to reframe all of it through through the lens of the joy of having this family connectivity … now in the evenings where normally we would have had a work-related commitment or something else, a school function,” she said.
