American conservative commentator and political activist Candace Owens has a $1 million fortune. Her pro-Trump advocacy is what is most well known about her. She began as a liberal but switched to the far right in 2016, where she started spreading false information, a variety of conspiracies, and advocating white nationalism. Owens contributes to the conservative website the Daily Wire and hosts her own self-titled podcast.
Early Life and Education
On April 29, 1989, in Stamford, Connecticut, Candace Amber Owens Farmer was given the name Candace Owens. She is the third of four children, and after her parents split up when she was about eleven, she was raised by her grandparents. Owens attended Stamford High School while he was an adolescent.
She was there when white male classmates repeatedly left racist murder threats on her phone. Following a lawsuit filed by the family of Owens against the Stamford Board of Education for failing to uphold their daughter’s rights, a settlement of more than $37,000 was reached. Owens studied journalism at the University of Rhode Island for her higher education. But during her junior year, she ultimately left because of a student loan issue.
Owens accepted a Vogue magazine internship in New York City after quitting college. She then obtained employment at a Manhattan private equity business as an administrative assistant, rising to the position of vice president of administration there later.
In 2019, Owens fell in love with and wed George Farmer, a former Turning Point UK chair who is English. Early in 2021, the couple gave birth to a son as their first child.
