Breanna Youn is just five-years-old with more than a million Instagram followers from around the world. The pint-sized internet sensation is from South Korea living with her parents and brother in Dubai.
Breanna’s mother started the Instagram account for the purpose of sharing her daughter’s pictures with family and friends. But then users started pouring in big numbers with an average 30,000 new followers joining every day.
The little girl has been flown business class around the world and showered with presents worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, from Louis Vuitton handbags and Chanel and Tiffany jewelry to designer outfits, banquets and hampers laden with chocolates and cookies.
Despite criticism that they may be exploiting their child, Breanna’s mother said: ‘As parents, you are happy that people love your children. Now Breanna knows she is famous. If we go to the mall, she will ask why people are not taking pictures with her. She is used to it.
Breanna speaks four languages, including English, Korean, Tagalog and Arabic.
