Granddaughter of the Richest Man in the Philippines is Not Afraid to Get Her Hands Dirty, Literally

You would think that being the granddaughter of the richest man in the Philippines would make Nicole Coson stay away from activities that would make her look less posh but many were surprised to learn that his young lady is not afraid to get her hands dirty, quite literally!

Nicole, the granddaughter of Henry Sy, is an artist who studied pottery at Jalan Bahar Clay Studios in Singapore. She handles clay with her hands – just like every other potter in the world! This amazed many netizens because even if clay is really clean, handling the material still looks and ‘feels’ dirty.

Aside from pottery, Nicole also loves to do other artistic stuff, including painting and using various types of media to create art.

Nicole’s granddad Henry Sy has been on the top of Forbes’ list of richest people in the Philippines for years. As owner of SM Investments Corporation, the 92-year-old patriarch is the richest in the country with an estimated net worth of $18 billion.

You might be surprised to learn that the second richest on the list does not even reach half of Sy’s wealth! John Gokongwei, Jr. has an estimated net worth of $5.5 billion.
