20-year-old Kylie Jenner built a $900 million fortune

The makeup mogul, Kylie Jenner, graces the cover of Forbes Magazine as the youngest self-made billionaire. Since the announcement, many readers have questioned the term 'self-made'. Personally I was a bit bothered by the use of the word. No hate, no shade... I'm not knocking her success by any means but I view self-made as not inheriting a great deal of wealth or platform. Although some agree with the language, I do think it was a great conversation starter for pop culture.
