Chelsea Clinton said she is considering political office, and toward that end, is purposely living a public life.

“I really felt like I could make a difference and then I should make a difference,” she said, Politico reported. “And I had very much led a deliberately private life for a long time, and now I’m attempting to lead a purposely public life.”

Right now, she said to CNN, working with the Clinton Foundation is her best move — the way she could “best be of service,” she said. But moving up the political ladder is a real possibility, she said.

“I’m also grateful to live in a city, and a state and country where really I believe in my elected officials,” she said, when asked directly about her plans to seek political office, Politico reported. “And if some day either of those weren’t true, and I thought I could make more of a difference in the public sector, or if I didn’t like how my city or my state or my country were being run, then I’d have to ask and answer that question.”

She said similarly to NBC months ago, when asked that same question about political aspirations.
