One of the major criticisms from Melania Trump's speech (aside from the alleged plagiarism, that is) was that it failed to convey any personal stories about her husband, now-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

That was not the case, however, with the speech given by his youngest daughter, 22-year-old Tiffany Trump.

The recent University of Pennsylvania graduate's speech before delegates at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland on Tuesday was chock-full of personal anecdotes, including how she couldn't wait to introduce her billionaire businessman father to all of her friends, because he:

“...is a natural-born encourager, the last person who will ever tell you to lower your sights or encourage your dreams.”

She added:

“I always look forward to introducing him to my friends, especially the ones with preconceived notions, because they meet a man with natural charm...”

Tiffany, Trump's only child with former model Marla Maples, also spoke of how she still has copies of all her school report cards - not because the grades mattered, but because her father wrote “sweet notes” on them.

She told the crowd:

“Donald Trump has never done anything halfway, least of all as a parent.”

Trump even recalled a difficult time several years earlier in which someone close to her passed away, and the first person she got a phone call from - “as I knew I would” - was from her father. She continued:

“Without his unwavering support and care for me during such a challenging time, I don't know how I would have made it through.”

Tiffany quipped in her speech that:

“Like my father, I never back down to challenges.”

She didn't seem to back down from that pledge at all.
