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 2022, 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 a older sister named Hein, who grew up with her in Alberta, Canada. Mai, unlike other children her age, spent her time surfing the web and making videos.
This has been the young star’s hobby since she was seven years old. She loved 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 started uploading on her channel, which was originally named “maiphammy”, in 2015. At first, she made 2000s pop song covers. She also made vlogs about her favorite sport, volleyball.
Later on, she experimented with more interesting content ideas. She gained traction after producing videos related to beauty routines, high school life, cleaning, clothing hauls, and traveling alone.
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 more places. With this, the Mai Pham channel has 2.28 million subscribers.
When she was 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 other social media sites. She is very active on Instagram, where she has 696,000 followers. Mai also has a TikTok account with 964,000 fans.
On her TikTok, she mainly uploads videos of her testing various 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 she receives from companies such as Simple Health, Fidelity and BetterHelp.
She also does affiliate marketing not only on YouTube but also on her other social media accounts. 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.
She’s been doing well moving on since then. At 17, she got a nose job. The following year, she bought a house in Los Angeles. More recently, she moved to New York and rents an apartment there.
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.
