The highest-paid female YouTuber is a 7-year-old who earned $28 million in 2021
Forbes released its list of the top 10 highest-earning YouTube creators and, for the third year in a row, the only woman on the list is a 7-year-old who makes way more than me.
Anastasia Radzinskaya, better known as Nastya, has upwards of 100 million subscribers across her 11 YouTube channels, and Forbes reports she made an estimated $28 million in 2021 through ad revenue and brand deals.
Viewers follow along as she learns basic skills, like telling time and making a to-do list, against the highly saturated backdrop of her enormous home.

1 earner was 23-year-old Jimmy Donaldson, known as MrBeast, whose "$456,000 Squid Game In Real Life!"
video has racked up 202 million views in less than two months since its release.
He also spearheaded 2021's international #TeamSeas fundraiser, which raised more than $30 million to clean up the ocean.
The only newcomer to the top 10 is Unspeakable, who makes less expensive MrBeast-esque challenges like "Last to Leave the Pond wins $10,000."
It makes you wonder: what will it take for YouTube creators to be considered mainstream celebs?
Paul makes 90 percent of his income from boxing, and rarely posts on YouTube anymore.
Boxers like Tyson Fury and Canelo Alvarez made the celebrity list, so why not Paul?
The last time a woman other than Nastya made the list was in 2017, when Lilly Singh clenched the no.
