As a child, her years were divided between New York City, East Hampton, and Long Island (www.isdesigners). These places were what Jackie called home. They were the places where she learned the hobbies she loved as a child. She even enjoyed them as an adult. Her favorite hobby was horseback riding. Jackie learned how to ride almost as soon as she could walk. She also enjoyed reading, writing, and painting (Onassis 66). However, Jackie's youth years weren't always filled with joy.

Jackie's mother and father separated when she was only eight years old (Onassis 66). When they split up, her father was penniless, which left them financially insecure (www.thekennedy2). Jackie had always hoped for her parents to get back together. She truly missed her father dearly. It wasn't until 1940, when the sad divorce was finalized, that Jackie got to spend time with her father, John (www.isdesigners). Jackie's mother Janet remarried in 1942. Jackie was only thirteen years old. Janet married Hugh D. Auchincloss, Jr. Hugh just happened to be a wealthy lawyer (Onassis 66). Which re-secured their finances. School kept Jackie busy allowing her mind to drift away from home troubles.

Jackie was very well educated. She attended several private American schools. She was a well-rounded polished student (Onassis 66). In 1947, at the age of just 17 Jackie received a major honor. Igor Cassine, a Hearst gossip columnist named Jackie, "Debutante of the Year" (www.isdesigners). Jackie continued her education up to college. Jackie studied at Vassar College during her freshman and sophomore year. For her junior year Jackie moved to Paris to attend Sorbonne. Then for her year as a successful senior she came back to the United States to attend Georgetown Washington University. She would graduate there with a major in French Literature (www.isdesigner).

Jackie entered a Vogue writing contest in 1951, just after graduating from Georgetown. More than one thousand people joined Jackie in entering the contest. The grand prize was to work for Vogue's Paris edition. To her own surprise, Jackie's paper on " People I wish I had known" won the grand prize. However Jackie turned down the Paris offer. Instead she opted for a job at the Washington Times-Herald as a reporter-photographer (Onassis 66). Jackie's position was formally held by Kathleen Kennedy (www.isdesigners).
