Youngest Female Billionaire

8 Youngest Female Billionaires in the World

In broad terms, it’s still an uncommon sight amongst society to see women who are in the workforce earning more than their male counterparts. That’s thanks to many factors and societal norms that will take time to chip away at and ultimately break away. We usually think of the rich as older, wispier-haired gentlemen from generational wealth and large conglomerates. They might own a hedge fund or a successful law practice across states. They might be stiff politicians that spend a lifetime collecting paychecks to maintain the status quo to keep a comfortable chair on a committee.

In 2022 the methods with which people can make money have grown ten-fold. Children born in the digital age have found new trails to blaze for those next in line. Some have created new types of jobs altogether! Creativity is born out of necessity. And for women who were disenfranchised by a system catered to suit the needs of a fortunate few, some through nepotism, and some through ingenuity, have turned themselves into the youngest and richest in the world.

So today we’re taking a look at some of the youngest female billionaires!

Kylie Jenner is the youngest female billionaire!

It’s very fitting that the youngest female billionaire is the most well-known. That’s especially true if we use Instagram as the metric. With 306 million followers, she is the most followed woman on the platform. Thanks to her astute business mind, she used that platform to launch a successful beauty line ranging from maternity wear to cosmetics.

Learning from the likes of her celebrity sisters, she turned herself into a self-made billionaire. There’s been some contention with that title and that’s justifiable considering the comfortable financial backing she comes from with the runaway successes from Keeping Up With the Kardashians and other family ventures. What we know is that Kylie knows how to seize an opportunity and command her following for financial gain.

Did You Know?

Kylie Jenner is married to award-winning rapper, Travis Scott. Her sister, Kendall, has enjoyed individual success as well through her modeling career and is now one of the most highly sought after talents.
