Zhang Xin (張欣) is a woman entrepreneur in China…but she is also one of the wealthiest self-made women in the country. Knowing the importance of social media...it is certain that such digital tool helps to blend on a global level to reach the highest synergy.
The incredible fact is that she is around seven times richer than the Queen with a net worth of approximately £2.4bn. That’s what is called success.
So people are questioning her fortune and how did she get that wealth!
Brought up in poverty in Beijing, she then moved to Hong Kong at 14 and worked in a shop. Being rather ambitious and willing to move forward rapidly - another change of scenery – by 19 she took the direction of the UK for some Economics studies in Cambridge.
