Many people dream of traveling to a foreign country alone at least once in their life. But that is a reality for Mai Pham, a young travel influencer and content creator. She is known for rarely staying in one place for longer than eight months. Aside from travel, she makes beauty, fashion, and lifestyle content. As of 2023, Mai Pham has an estimated net worth of $2 million.
Phạm Xuân-Mai was born on December 5, 2002 and her ethnicity is Vietnamese. She has an older sister named Hein, who grew up with her in Alberta, Canada. Unlike other kids her age, Mai spent her time surfing the web and making videos.
This has been her since she was seven years old. She enjoyed spending time alone in her early teens, frequently going out to food places or visiting nearby cities on her own. Pham’s dad brought her to Asia for the first time when she turned 11, and she took care of all of their airline reservations. These experiences turned her into the free spirit she is today.
Mai began uploading on YouTube, which was originally named “maiphammy”, in 2015. At first, she made 2000s pop song covers but also made vlogs about her favorite sport, volleyball. Later on, she experimented with more interesting content ideas and gained traction after producing videos related to beauty routines, high school life, cleaning, and travel.
She was expelled from high school in 2018 for filming. Mai decided to leave and attend an online school. This opened up a chance for her to record videos full-time and travel around more. With this, the Mai Pham channel has 2.92 million subscribers.
When she turned 16, Pham flew solo to Bali, Indonesia. The independent women then traveled to New York, Hawaii, London, Amsterdam, Milan, Paris, and more. She plans to go to Antarctica.
Aside from YouTube, she shares her adventures on Instagram, where she has 881,000 followers. TikTok is another big platform for Pham and has 1.4 million fans there. On TikTok, she mainly uploads videos of her testing cosmetic products. Pham is also an honored guest at BeautyCon, a fashion and wellness convention.
Net Worth and Earnings
Mai gets around 200,000 views per day, which earns her $1,600 per day in ad revenue. That’s estimated to be $580,000 annually. This doesn’t include the sponsorship deals from companies such as Simple Health, Fidelity and BetterHelp. Affiliate marketing is another steady income stream. The influencer owned a clothing line at one point. Her overall wealth today is approximately $2 million.
Pham is single at the moment since her previous relationship ended badly. Brandon, her former boyfriend, cheated on her, and it utterly devastated her. Since then she has been enjoying the single life. At 17, she got a nose job as she was unhappy with her appearance.
In the following year, she bought a house in Los Angeles and currently rents a place in New York. Mai Pham rents a high-end apartment and is estimated to pay $5,000 – $8,000 per month in rent. In addition, she spends over $1,000 per week on living expenses. This means she easily spends over $10,000 to live in New York.
