Yalitza Aparicio is a renowned Mexican actress, after starring in Alfonso Cuarón’s film Roma.
Before that, the 26-year-old from the state of Oaxaca worked as a teacher in rural schools in her region. But she was encouraged by the challenge and became the first indigenous (and second Mexican) woman to be nominated for Best Actress at the prestigious Oscar Awards. In fact, Time magazine called it “the best performance of 2018.”
This meant a radical change in life for Aparicio, with a significant increase in his bank accounts. According to Celebworth.net, the actress currently has an estimated net worth of $ 3 million, a figure she reached in less than two years.
Aparicio began to appear on the covers of fashion and film magazines. She was even included last year in the list of the 100 most influential women in the world in 2019. And this year, she was invited to be part of the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
