    You might also consider using "her chances of becoming" instead of "the chance of her becoming" in that sentence.

    I would say my version, but that's just a personal preference.

    I'd use "... her chance/chances of becoming president" too.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
