Youth organisation reveals top ten young stars set to make millions

Following a boom in young people gaining stardom across industries such as social media, sports and entertainment, a new study from a youth-led community organisation, Conscious Youth, reveals the top ten young stars under 21 set to make millions in the future.

The new study by Conscious Youth reveals the top ten stars of the future by analysing their current net worth, predicted net worth and current Instagram following¹.

Delving into the rising stars predicted net-worths within the next ten years, the young people that make the future rich list are:

  • Charli D’Amelio – Influencer and TikTokker
  • Emma Radacanu – Tennis Player
  • Jojo Siwa – Performer
  • Phil Foden – Footballer
  • Olivia Rodrigo – Singer
  • Lil Huddy – TikTokker
  • Jaden Hossler – TikTokker
  • Bakayo Saka – Footballer
  • Amelie Bea Smith – Actress
  • Jacob Tremblay – Actor

Topping the rich list of the future is TikTok star Charli D’Amelio (17 years old), who is set to have a net worth of around 40 million dollars in ten years, which is a whopping 200% increase from her current net worth ($12,000,000). Charli is currently the most followed person on TikTok, with over 125 million followers viewing her dance and lip-syncing videos². Charli has over 47 million followers and an engagement rate of 5.3%, contributing to the rising star ranking number one on the rich list of the future.

Taking the second spot is Emma Radacanu, who recently became the first British woman in 44 years to win the tennis Grand Slam title at the US Open³. The 19-year-old tennis player is set to have a net worth of nearly half a billion pounds in ten years (up from her current networth of £5,400,000) which would surpass Serena Williams’ current net worth.

Jojo Siwa (18 years old), famous for her singing and dancing career, comes third in the future rich list ranking. Jojo became a reality star at nine years old when she competed on the TV show ‘Dance Moms’, and since then, she has achieved success through her Nickelodeon talent deal for events and merchandise⁴. Considering the young performers current net worth and Instagram following, the star is predicted to see a 232% increase in net worth in the next ten years (to $50,000,000).

Other sports stars that make the list are Phil Foden (21 years old) and Bakayo Saka (19 years old), footballers who played in UEFA Euros 2021⁵. Footballers are known to have a hefty wage packet, and Foden and Saka are no different, with the stars both predicted to have net worths over £50,000,000 in ten years, according to research conducted by the Huddersfield youth organisation. Currently, Phil Foden has a net worth £3,000,000, which means his net worth will have increased by 1,632% in ten years. Similarly, Bakayo Saka has a net worth of £2,000,000, which means the footballers’ net worth will have increased by 2,900%.

BRIT award winner Olivia Rodrigo (18 years old) takes fifth place in the future rich list ranking. With a current net worth of $5,000,000 and a predicted net worth of $7,000,000 in ten years, the ‘Good 4 You’ star is one of the most talked-about young celebrities in the past year. Olivia has a whopping 21.6 million Instagram followers and an engagement rate of 16.54%, which reflects how much she is growing in popularity and how much her fans enjoy the content she is producing.

Sophie Simpson, Co-Founder and CEO of Conscious Youth, comments: “It’s fantastic to see so many young people thriving in their careers and being rewarded for their efforts and contributions to sports, entertainment and pop culture.

“This future rich list is not only a prediction of which young stars will make the most money in ten years time, but it’s also a list of stars that other young people can look up to. Each of the stars on this list have achieved something amazing within their area of expertise, whether this is being the first woman to win the US Open in 44 years or becoming one of the most prolific and influential football players in an English football team.

“These achievements are something to be incredibly proud of, and I think we can all learn something from young people who have so much drive and determination to do well within their careers. However, it’s vital that other young people find inspiration from these young stars rather than compare themselves.

“Everyone comes from different backgrounds, which means everyone faces different challenges in their life. Considering this, achieving success can take a little bit longer for different people, but this doesn’t mean you aren’t capable of achieving great things like the stars in this rich list of the future.”
