Before Kylie Jenner it was Mark Zuckerberg who became the youngest billionaire at the age of 23 but now Kylie Jenner has overtaken him. She told Forbes “I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”
Kylie Jenner is a self made woman according to Forbes. Forbes estimated that her company that is her cosmetic brand named Kylie Cosmetics is worth $900 million (£685m). Kylie gives all the credits of her success to her social media fans and says “It’s the power of social media. I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything. I see [Kylie Cosmetics] going very far. I work really hard.”
She also faced some criticism for the part ‘self made’ used for her about which Dictionary.com tweeted: “Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided. Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman.” But the fact is she is officially declared as the world’s youngest billionaire All the profit that her brand receives is all her’s. Talking more about her brand there are just seven full time and five part time employees in her company. She has received great success in a very short period of time.
