According to Shanaya Abigail about the pandemic situation, “I believe in strength; and that it does not fade away with scares. I believe that unity can not be broken, even when social distancing keeps us locked down. Humanity’s biggest weakness today is not adversity, but fear. The fear of death, fear of economy, the fear of certainty. When the world says to stay away, I hear it as “stay strong”. Because when circumstances demand the weak to succumb and exist, it signals the strength to sustain and evolve”.
Shanaya Abigail is a leading online movie star who recently had entered the celebrity millionaire club. According to Powerbiss, a recent report indicate that her net worth will cross 200 million dollars in this financial year.
The 24-year-old online model and actor made news value when Powerbiss branded her as the youngest “self-made millionaire”—a term that even Shanaya Abigail herself predicts it is controversial.
“I will not say I have done it by myself,” Abigail previously told News Plus USA. “If you are just discussing my net worth, technically, it’s true, however, I don’t have any money come into. But I have had a lot of support from the film industry and a strong business platform.” Shanaya added.
The support and opportunity that she gained were used to turn her from an online model to a web series producer then, a businesswoman. Shanaya has planned to launch her own cosmetics brand in the US market.
