Geraldine Anne Ferraro was born in Newburg, New York in 1935. Her father, Dominick, is an Italian immigrant and her mother Antonetta Ferraro is the first Italian. When Geraldine was eight years old, Dominic passed away and Antoneta moved her family to the South Bronx so she could work in the apparel industry. The South Bronx is a low-income area. Like many Italian children in New York City, Geraldine is on a Catholic school where she is a successful student. Due to the income of her family rental property, she was eventually able to move to the narrow Marymount College in Tarrytown, where she served as a boarder. She excelled in her studies, skipping the seventh grade and always on the honors list. After graduating from Marymount, she received a scholarship from Marymount Manhattan College. Scholarships are not always sufficient; Ferraro usually does two part-time jobs during school hours to help pay for tuition and fees. During college, she met John Zaccaro, who will eventually become the husband and father of her three children. In 1956, she graduated from college and was certified by a public school teacher.
