5 Inspiring Women From Forbes 2018 30 Under 30
Every year, Forbes magazine curates their famous 30 under 30 list. Filled with ambitious and influential people, Forbes’ 30 under 30 is a list every young person should be looking at for inspiration. This year’s 30 under 30 list is blooming with women and since we’re all about women empowerment here at HelloTittie, I’ve put together a list of the top 5 inspiring women featured on the Forbes list.
Ayesha Curry, 28
We all know this beauty is married to ball player Stephen Curry, but she’s also a celebrity chef who just opened her first restaurant, in San Francisco. Ayesha is also an author, founder of Homemade, a meal-prep recipe box service, co-founder of Cheeky, a company that sells tableware and utensils for children, and has her own cooking show on the Food Network. This is just some of what she’s done y’all. Talk about female entrepreneurship! Oh - and she’s accomplished all of this while being an awesome mommy too!
Yara Shahidi, 17
Best known for her role as Zoey Johnson on Black-ish, Yara is more than an actress. The young Yara is also an activist for women's empowerment and diversity in the Hollywood. She is currently working on a Black-ish spin-off, Grown-ish, which airs at the beginning of 2018. The show will be based on Zoey leaving her home for college and entering the adult world.
Cardi B, 25
Y’all know we’re big fans of Cardi over here, so it's no surprise she made it on Forbes list. Cardi has had an exceptional year, from topping Billboard's charts for three consecutive weeks to getting engaged to Migos’ very own, Offset. The “Bodak Yellow” artist has implied she’s been working on more music and we’re definitely excited to see what else Cardi, or the “Trap Selena,” as she calls herself, blesses us with.
Marley Dias, 13
One of the youngest on the Forbes list, Marley is an inspiration for all women, young and old. This smart and ambitious girl is the founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks and author of “Marley Dias Gets It Done: And So Can You!” The young power-house has 10,000 books that feature black female protagonists - that’s waaaaaay more than I’ve ever read.
Her music speaks to us young women of color as if she made it specifically for us. Her latest Album, Ctrl, was one that many women personally connected to and we always appreciative of this kind of music. SZA has been a stream of Black Girl Magic and we’re here for it. She has spoken about leaving the music industry in the past but sis, don’t do it. We need you.
Congrats to you ladies for being honored by Forbes and making our top five. Thank you for being an inspiration to all us women!
