While there have been some online critics who question whether the term “self-made” could apply to a member of the Kardashian-Jenner family,  Forbes  explained that, “despite a lot of help from her famous family, she didn’t inherit her business,  she built it.”      According to the outlet, Jenner is only one of ten billionaires in the world under the age of 30. While seven of them are heirs, only three are considered self-made because they created their own fortunes — Stripe co-founder John Collison, 29, Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel, 29, and Jenner, 22.
