The popular social media personality and reality  T.V actress on the popular show Keeping up With the Kardashians, Kylie Jenner just hit a milestone mid-March by earning one-billion dollars from her extremely successful makeup brand Kylie Cosmetics. Just at 21 years, old Forbes states that “She’s the youngest-ever self-made billionaire, reaching a ten-figure fortune at a younger age than even Mark Zuckerberg”. But do others agree that Kylie is “self-made”?

On Twitter, Dictionary.com had a different idea of what self-made meant and responded back saying “Haven’t we gone over this? Self-made: Having succeeded in life unaided.” Kylie’s sister Kim Kardashian came to her defense sayingI really didn’t get it because she is ‘self-made’ — we are all ‘self-made,'” Kardashian West said. “What, because we came from a family that has had success? To me, that doesn’t really make sense.”

A lot of teenagers and students follow Kylie and purchase products from her makeup brand. Many students at CHS also agreed that Kylie wasn’t self-made and had help throughout her career. “Kylie isn’t self-made because she already had that fan base to buy her products, unlike smaller brands. Said Freshman Riya Shah. “It easy to sell stuff when you already know about the person selling the products”

Students also believe that she got her fame off of her well-known siblings such as Kim Kardashian, and from staring on the show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. “Kylie has very famous family members like her sisters and her mom/manager Kris Jenner, so she also got famous off of them,” said Freshman Marilyn Nguyen “Also since her mom is her manager, she probably got a lot of help from her.”

Celebrities like self-made billionaire Oprah who was born in rural poverty, and raised in a poor urban neighborhood truly made it without help from others. Kylie has been surrounded by fame and fortunes her whole life. So can you really compare Kylie to Oprah? “People like Oprah started from nothing and preserved through their career and whole life. With Kylie, I feel like it was her mother helping her all along and her fame,” said Freshman Sruthi Vuji
