Forbes Billionaires List Has South Florida Connections

Meet Alexandra Andresen – you probably don't know her name, but you should.

This Norwegian heiress was just named the world's youngest billionaire at only 19-years-old!

She's the heir to her family's massive fortune in the tobacco industry, which dates back to the 19th century, according to Forbes.

The publication values her stake in Ferd Holdings at a whopping $1.2 billion!

She's officially stealing the spotlight as the world's youngest billionaire from Snapchat founder, Evan Spiegel.

While most teens fresh out of high school wouldn't mind managing a multi-billion dollar empire, Alexandra opts to live a more grounded life.

By the looks of her Instagram, she really is like any other teenager – if you set aside her massive wealth.

Her biggest passion? Horseback riding.

And she's proved to be quite the talented equestrian – the athlete has won competitions all over Europe.

Her 20-year-old sister, Katharina, also made Forbe's prestigious list. Both own a 42.2 percent stake in Ferd Holdings, while their father, Johan H. Andresen, still claims 15.2 percent.

The company has roots dating back to 1849 after Johan Henrike Andresen, Alexandra's great-great-great grandfather, created what would end up being the leading cigarette maker in Norway for more than 150 years.

This is the family portrait we all wish we could pull off.

While we can only dream to have the Norwegian heiress' life, here's the one question we're all probably wondering ...

How many hours does an average American teen have to work at a local Abercrombie and Fitch to amass that colossal fortune?
