We already brought you part one of our list of 15 things you probably didn’t know about Hillary Clinton, and now we’re back with part two! Check out eight more interesting and little-known facts about our potential future president that you definitely (probably) did not know below. You might be surprised by what you find out!

Number Eight: She Has Won a Grammy. Clinton won a Grammy in 1996 for Best Spoken Word Album for the audio version of her book, It Takes A Village. Is there anything this woman can’t do?

Number Seven: She Once Made a Really Great Investment. In 1978, Clinton invested $1,000 in commodities futures. Just 10 short months later, that $1,000 had amazingly become $100,000.

Number Six: She Reads Detective Novels to Relax. Though she called them “cheap thrills,” Clinton enjoys a good detective novel when she is trying to relax.

Number Five: She Out-Earned Bill When He Was Governor of Arkansas. In 1991, Clinton made more than $188,000 at a private firm as a lawyer. Meanwhile, her husband, Bill, made significantly less as the governor of the state of Arkansas. In both 1988 and 1991, Clinton was named one of the 100 most influential lawyers in America by the National Law Journal.

Number Four: She and Bill Attend Different Churches. Clinton was born and raised a Methodist, and Bill is a Southern Baptist. Hillary did not want to convert, so the two attend separate churches. For her, “faith has always been primarily personal,” she said.

Number Three: She Once Convinced a Newspaper Delivery Driver to Take Her to the Atlanta Airport. And she successfully convinced the driver to do so at 5 a.m.! This presumably happened before she began being protected by the Secret Service.

Number Two: She Tried to Become a Marine When She Was 27 Years Old. According to her, the recruiter she spoke to while trying to become a U.S. Marine said, “You’re too old, you can’t see and you’re a woman.” Well, then.

Number One: She Published a Recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies. The recipe is available in Good Housekeeping’s website, and they are presently rated as five and a half stars out of six stars.
