In fact, the duo is equally famous and has equally loving fans. So, what are you and I waiting for? Let’s take a closer look at this politician’s adoring wife’s past and present.
Gisele Fetterman Had A Challenging Childhood
Gisele Barreto Fetterman is a Brazilian actress who was born in the city of Rio de Janeiro. However, due to crimes and violence in their community, her family was forced to leave their homeland.
So Gisele, along with her younger brother and mother, relocated to a one-room apartment in New York. Their lives became more difficult in New York as they struggled to make ends meet, even furnishing their apartment with furniture they discovered on the streets.
Despite having a Ph.D. from a Brazilian university, Gisele’s mother was denied a job because she and her children were undocumented immigrants.
Gisele Fetterman Founded Non-Profit Organizations
When Gisele became the First Lady of Braddock, Pennsylvania, she grabbed the opportunity and opened “The Braddock Free Store,” a nonprofit organization that sells toys, diapers, infant formula, clothing, household supplies, and furniture to local financially struggling families.
Moreover, the organization assists around 1,600 families each month. The Brazilian-American activist then established the Braddock Bench Project, which provides benches to neighborhood bus stations.
Gisele Does Not Want Other Immigrants To Suffer In The Same Way
As we previously stated, she was an immigrant child in the United States, which caused her many troubles. And now that she has faced her own struggles and become renowned, she has petitioned that immigrant families must not be split and is supporting “US immigration reform.”
When Donald Trump, the US President, chose to discontinue the project, Gisele knew she had to speak up, and she did. She also supported the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
A White Woman Verbally Abused Gisele Fetterman
Gisele was in a grocery store on October 11, 2020, when she was “verbally abused” by a random white woman. The American woman mentioned things like “you don’t belong in America” which was completely disrespectful.
Fetterman videotaped the entire episode and shared it on social media, it caused quite a stir! She captioned the post with “This behavior and this hatred is taught. If you know her, if she is your neighbor or relative, please, please teach her love instead.”
Her followers were understandably outraged, prompting Governor Tom Wolf to defend Fetterman, calling the event “shameful and disgusting.”
With their three children, it appears like the pair is having quite a life, and John Fetterman’s latest achievement must be adding to that.
