What was Emma Hernan's life like before her success?

Working hard has always been something Emma strived for, even before reaching her current level of wealth. As a teenager, she earned extra cash babysitting and scooping ice cream at the local dessert shop in her area. One of her babysitting jobs ended up changing her life! She struck up some conversations with the father of one of the kids she was caring for and learned more about the stock market.

Emma revealed to Nylon that she invested her modeling money, babysitting money, and ice cream money into the stock market and healthcare. She started at the age of 14 or 15 and was impressively able to help finance her family’s business by the time she was 17. She wasn’t even a legal adult yet, but she was already making major waves for her loved ones. Taking charge of her financial life at such a young age proves just how inspirational Emma truly is.
