Condoleezza Rice Summary and Analysis

Condoleezza Rice's father was athletic, and because she was an only child, he encouraged her to be as well. Condoleezza took up ice skating as a child because her parents were going to graduate school in Denver, and it was something she could do all day while they were in class.
