Jordan Hewson is an Irish social justice activist. She owes her fame and popularity to being the oldest child of the U2 frontman, Bono. Through her work in creating awareness, Jordan worked for organizations like Global Citizen and is also the founder of the tech company Speakable.
Aside from her work to create awareness on issues affecting people such as poverty and social justice, Jordan has been involved in publicized relationships including with the Spanish actor Diego Osorios. Away from all this, here are other fascinating details about the celebrity daughter.
She was Born the Day Her Father Turned 29 Years Old
Jordan Joy Hewson was born in Dublin on May 10, 1989, to the U2 lead singer Paul Hewson who is popularly known by his stage name Bono and his lifelong wife, Ali Hewson. Jordan’s birthday is quite unique as she arrived in the world on her father’s 29th birthday. The successful musician considers their shared birthday as one of the greatest gifts he could ever get. She grew up alongside three siblings, Eve, Elijah, and John Hewson.
During her childhood, Jordan and her siblings were at the receiving end of their father’s temper. The U2 frontman revealed in his memoir Surrender that he regretted this and later worked towards being a better father to his children. Thankfully, he overcame it and became more invested in being a good parent while also building his career.
Regarding her education, Jordan attended Columbia University and graduated with a degree in Political Science. Despite having a first degree, Jordan went back to school for a master’s degree in Creative Writing from the same alma mater.

It would be recalled that both of her parents are activists who have worked for different organizations. In fact, her father is the founder of ONE, an organization that fights to eradicate poverty among other causes.
Her company launched its first product named Action Button to empower readers through stories that inspire them. Also, the product can be embedded in other sites where readers can send in their feedback. So far, the product has been endorsed by celebrities including John Legend.
While she grew up in a family that had connections, she revealed that it mostly opened the door once with a person. We infer that she has relied on hard work on her part to keep things running at her company. So far.
