What’s the first thing you’d do if you had 1 billion dollars on your bank account right now? What’s the first thing you’d buy? Would you quit your job? Would you invest or just live out your fortune?
These are the kind of questions these young girls have to deal with on a daily basis. I know, that’s the best kind of problem you could ever ask for, but hey, everybody has to play the cards he’s dealt, am I right?
Who hasn’t dreamed about being a billionaire? I know I have. Like every day of my life. The girls we are about to mention pulled it off in no time, either thanks to heritage, hard work, or the combination of both. In the following paragraphs, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the top 25 young billionaires and their incredible fortunes.

16. Anna Anissimova

15. Tatiana Casiraghi

13. Ariana Rockefeller
Net worth: $2.8 Billion
Well, there’s no much we can say about someone with the last name Rockefeller other than their loaded with money. Obviously, Ariana Rockefeller isn’t the exception to that rule as the face of the family’s fifth generation.

12. Tamara Ecclestone
Net worth: $3.6 Billion
Tamara Ecclestone first became famous for being blackmailed by her fianceé Jonathan Ketterman in 2002. She’s the daughter of Bernie Ecclestone, former CEO of the Formula One Group, so you know she didn’t have to deal with that kind of stuff (no one does).

11. Dorothy Wang

9. Elizabeth Holmes
Net worth: $4.5 Billion
Elizabeth Holmes was at the center of another college dropout success story. She quit Stanford at 19 to found Theranos, a company that promised its clients and investors that could run blood tests with just a single drop of blood.
Turns out the company was a fraud and both Holmes and her ex-boyfriend Ramesh "Sunny" Balwani were indicted in 2018. The trail is still ongoing but Holmes could lose all the fortune she amassed by being the 50% stakeholder of a company once worth 9 Billion dollars. Now, her net worth is unclear.
8. Athina Onassis
Net worth: $5 Billion
Athina Onassis is the only surviving descendant of Greek magnate Aristotle Onassis, so you know she’s loaded. The Onassis made a fortune out of the shipping industry, but her mother Christina Onassis also married the heir of a pharmaceutical empire.
Thus, Onassis has always been surrounded by wealth, but also with several disputes about heritages and real estate. However, she’s always amassed a lot of capital from her successful equestrian career as a show jumper.
7. Charlotte Casiraghi
Net worth: $5.7 Billion
Charlotte Casiraghi was born in a gold crib. Being a part of the royal family of Monaco, she’s had it all since day one. Still, that didn’t stop her from pursuing a career of her own as a model and philanthropist.

6. Marie Besnier Beauvalot
Net worth: $5.6 Billion

5. Petra Stunt
Net worth: $7 Billion
Perhaps you know Petra Stunt for her maiden name, Petra Ecclestone. Yes, you guessed it, she’s also the daughter of Bernie Ecclestone with former Armani supermodel Slavica Radic. But, why does Petra have more money than her older sister?
Well, she married James Stunt, a wealthy businessman who founded most of her endeavors. They got divorced in 2017 but she kept on with her career in the fashion industry as a model and designer. Way to go, girl.
4. Amanda Hearst
Net worth: $8.7 Billion
You may have heard about the Hearst Corporation but in case you haven’t let us give you a bit of context. They own Cosmopolitan, Esquire, half of the A&E Networks, and 20% of ESPN. So yes, they’re huge, and Amanda Hearst is the heiress of that empire.
Amanda’s rise to stardom started with her modeling career but she then pursuit a different path. She’s now an associate editor at Marie Claire, the co-chair of Riverkeeper's Junior Council and the founder of Friends of Finn, a non-profit organization that prevents dog abuse and animal testing.
3. Yang Huiyan

2. Jennifer Gates
Net worth: Around $25 Billion
Perhaps the last name Gates rings a bell. Jennifer Gates is the daughter of Bill and Melinda Gates, maybe you’ve heard about them. She happens to be the heiress to a “significant portion” of Bill Gates’ estimated fortune of 110 billion dollars.
Gates is also a competitive horseback rider and graduated from medical school at Stanford University back in 2018. She recently announced that she’s marrying fellow alumni and equestrian Nayel Nassar, who must be thrilled with the kind of money he’s got waiting for him.
1. Vanisha Mittal Bhatia
Net worth: $51 Billion
Well, Vanisha Mittal Bhatia sits at the top of our list and by a long stretch. She’s got more money than you’ll ever think of, but contrary to most wealthy people, she doesn’t actually show up for it and lives a somewhat ordinary life.
She’s the daughter of Lakshmi N. Mittal, chairman, and CEO of steelmaking giant ArcelorMittal. But if that wasn’t enough, Vanisha got married to Amit Bhatia, a wealthy banker. She graduated from the European Business School and the University of London.
