Skai Jackson is an all-rounder: she’s a model, actor, influencer, entrepreneur all at the same time. It’s no wonder that she makes a ton of money.
To begin with, how does the young star make all her money? Skai has more than one way she makes a fortune. She lives in a fantastic house with her parents. Although her parents have contributed to her lavish lifestyle, considering she started working since she was nine months, a lot of money spent on her is from Skai’s income.
The young celebrity always makes an effort to look stylish, and she never disappoints. Skai began her career as a child model appearing in numerous national commercials, including Band-Aid bandages, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Old Navy. Kiya Cole, Skai Jackson’s mother, is the one who catapults the young star’s career.

In an interview with Refinery29, she said, “Skai got started when she was 9 months old. I was told by a couple of people that she was a cute baby. I had a job at the post office at the time. I decided to give it a shot, and I sent her pictures into two modeling agencies that took babies. Two weeks later, they both called on the same day. I had to choose one, and she’s been working ever since. I never wavered about her going into the industry. At the time, the only thing I could think of is, ‘Well, hopefully, she can make enough money to go to college.'”
Kiya definitely saw something great in her daughter, and she supports her talents to date.
Skai also had minor roles in successful films such as The Smurfs and Arthur. She recently decided to leave Disney, but that didn’t mean that her light dimmed out. Skai is currently part of the show Peter Pan, Land of Forever which is still in pre-production. She plans on exploring more roles in the entertainment industry and challenging her limits. There’s no doubt that she’s an outstanding actress, and many productions would love to cast her.

She undoubtedly has impressive designs, and she has the potential to work on clothes suitable for people of all ages.
Jessie’s actress is also an author. In the book Reach for the Skai: How to Inspire, Empower, and Clapback, according to Penguin Random House, “Skai Jackson shares her lessons on life and her rise to stardom in this vibrant memoir about self-acceptance, girl empowerment, and the classy clapback.”
The release of the book stated that Skai sold the book to Crown for six figures at auction. Fans know this is not the only book she plans on releasing because there’s so much more stored in that little mind. Adults who’ve interacted with Skai have said that she gives better advice than many grown-ups, so she might be on her way to becoming an accomplished author as well.
On Instagram, Skai is also considered to be a social media influencer with over 7 million followers. With that kind of engagement and audience, she most probably receives a fair share of endorsement deals from companies and brands.
Social media influencers earn a couple of bucks for posting product videos or even just giving them a mention. She was also selected as the official ambassador for Teen Vogue. The actress also has a YouTube channel with over 1 million subscribers, and since she’s great at creating content, she can definitely earn a lot of money from her videos.
Skai has an estimated net worth of more than $1 million, and it probably increases every year. At 19 years of age, Skai Jackson is at the peak of her career.
