Amy Carter (1967-)


Amy Carter tried to remain out of the public eye throughout her father's career in politics. She was ten years old when her dad, Jimmy Carter, became president. A voracious reader, Amy was seldom seen without a book in hand. Her secret service code name was Dynamo. She attended Rose Hardy Middle School while in Washington, D.C. Since her time at the White House, Amy has become a political activist and published a children's book with her dad called The Little Baby Snoogle-Fleejer. Jimmy Carter wrote the book, and Amy Carter illustrated it. She is now on the board of the Carter Center, which advocates for diplomacy and human rights.

Fun Fact: Amy brought her Siamese cat Misty Malarky Ying Yang to the White House.

Next: Chelsea Clinton (1980-)
