The Top Richest Women In The World In 2021

Published

on

 February, 31-year-old Bumble co-founder Whitney Wolfe Herd took her matchmaking company public, becoming the youngest female CEO in the U.S. to ring an opening bell—and the world’s youngest self-made woman billionaire. Wolfe Herd, who is worth $1.3 billion, is one of 63 women who joined Forbes’s annual World’s Billionaires list for the first time in 2021. 

The world’s richest woman, L’Oreal heiress Françoise Bettencourt Meyers, scored the biggest dollar gain among women whose fortune is tied to public stocks. The share price of L’Oreal, in which she and her family own a 33% stake, rose nearly 40% since last March, helping add $24.7 billion to Bettencourt’s net worth. MacKenzie Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, also got richer this year—despite her extensive philanthropic efforts during the pandemic.

Scott, who has committed to giving her wealth away “until the safe is empty,” donated nearly $6 billion to charities across America in 2020. Yet, thanks to the skyrocketing Amazon stock she got in the divorce, she’s worth more now ($53 billion on this year’s list) than when she began ($36 billion on our 2020 ranking)

Not everybody won in 2021, however. The fortunes of 24 women decreased in the past year due to stock drops, declines in the value of private holdings, Forbes uncovering more information about their assets—or a very generous gift in October billionaire Friede Springer gave 15% of the company (worth about $1.2 billion) to the chief executive of Axel Springer, the German publishing company founded by her late husband. In an effort to encourage a smooth transition, she also sold him an additional 4.1% of the company and now holds just 22%.

on

As soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo sat down for a press conference at the European Championship Monday,he pushed aside two Coca-Cola bottles placed in front of him.

“Água,” he said in Portuguese, picking up a bottle of water and seemingly encouraging others to do the same. “No Coca-Cola.”

The simple gesture had a swift and dramatic impact: The soft drinks giant’s market value fell $4 billion, highlighting the power and impact that celebrities and influencers can have on the market.

The 36-year-old Juventus star, who has almost 300 million followers on his personal Instagram account, is known for maintaining strict physical and eating regimens and has previously criticized the consumption of soft drinks.

The company’s share price dropped from $56.10 to $55.22 quickly after Ronaldo’s slight, marking a 1.6 percent fall. The market value of Coca-Cola went from $242 billion to $238 billion, according to the Nasdaq index and the New York Stock Exchange.

The soft-drink manufacturer’s shares continued to slide on Wednesday, falling by 1.34 percent to $54.67.

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), the governing body for soccer in the region, issued a brief a statement noting that players are offered water, Coca-Cola and Coca-Cola Zero Sugar at press conferences and that they “can choose their preferred beverage.”

“Coca-Cola offers a range of drinks to suit different tastes and needs, which are available to players throughout the tournament,” the statement added.

A spokesperson for Coca-Cola, an official sponsor of Euro 2020, said in an email sent to the Washington Post that the company “did not have anything further to add,” to the UEFA statement.

How class 8 dropout John Pameri became a pilot and manager at Lewa conservancy

Published

on

John Pameri has made a life for himself despite not furthering his education beyond primary school.

The 46-year-old schooled up to Class Eight but today he works as a pilot and head of security at the famous Lewa Conservancy in Laikipia County.

“I don’t have university papers, I don’t have secondary school papers but I managed to do everything,” he says.

Pameri sat for his Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exam at Olarjiju Primary School in Laikipia in 1990 and scored 321 out of the possible 700 marks.

He did not proceed to high school as his parents were unable to raise tuition fees plus the Maasai culture did not value education at the time.

“I waited for my parents to get money to take me to the secondary school level, but they never managed to, so that was the end of my education,” he said.

In 1992, he joined Lewa Conservancy as a volunteer with the hope of becoming a ranger in the subsequent recruitment. 

“I went across to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy which I walked 100 kilometers from here,” Pameri recounted in an interview with Citizen TV.

At Lewa, he went through physical and intellectual training, rising through the ranks to the position of assistant head of security. 

Four years later, Pameri enrolled for a natural resource management course at Mpulumanga in South Africa and graduated with a distinction.

Lewa Conservancy later sponsored his pilot training at the Pletermaritz Flight Training Centre in South Africa, and in 2012, he had his first solo flight.

“The communities are really proud of me seeing my life how I have grown up from a local community,” Pameri said.

Today, Pameri is in charge of 87 members of staff, including field rangers who are tasked with wildlife management, resolving human-wildlife conflict, security, and escorting guests at the conservancy.

“People speak, but wildlife doesn’t. I don’t think there is any other job I would do…until my life ends, it’s about conservation and wildlife, that is my bottom line,” he said.
