The family of Annabel Yao

Annabel Yao is the daughter of Yao Ling, the second wife of Ren Zhengfei. The founder of Huawei has two other, much older daughters from another marriage. Annabel's parents have separated by now, but the young Annabel is still the apple of Ren's eye.

Annabel's father, the powerful Ren Zhengfei

Besides Huawei tycoon, Ren Zhengfei is also an ex-military, member of the Communist Party, and part of the oligarchy that drives the nation's politics and economy. His third and current wife, Su Wei, used to be his secretary, The South China Morning Post alleges.

One of Annabel's half-sisters from Ren Zhengfei's first marriage is Meng Wanzhou. She is running the Huawei's business in North America. Living in Canada, Wanzhou has taken a lot of heat as the face of the company. She is being prosecuted for alleged fraud in Canada and for breaking U.S. trade laws.

Annabel Yao: Influencer and celebrity

For her 25-year-younger sister, Annabel, life seems to be a lot easier at the moment. She studies, dances, travels, and wears amazing designer clothes.

Computer science at Harvard

From 2016 to 2020, Annabel Yao majored in Computer Science at Harvard College. Considering her study plans, it seemed evident that she was thinking about a future in the world of business and economics. And possibly a job in her father's company.

A ballerina named Annabel Yao

But Annabel was also a fervent ballerina at Harvard. She trained and performed with the Harvard Ballet Company.

Education of a Chinese millionaire's daughter

The website of the Harvard Ballet Company says that Annabel Yao started dancing in Shanghai when she was 15 years old. She continued her training as a dancer in prestigious academies in the United States.

Annabel Yao at the Debutante Ball

In 2018, the Huawei heiress drew international attention by participating in the Debutante Ball in Paris. The renowned gala is a traditional event in which the young men and women of the upper class present themselves to society. Annabel Yao made her appearance together with other illuster names that included countless aristocrats, the grandson of Gregory Peck, and Giacomo Belmondo.

From then on, society watchers from West as well as East began following the fascinating lifestyle of Annabel Yao. As one of the richest people in the world, she travels constantly. She has plenty of time to visit the most wonderful beaches.

China - USA - Great Britain - France

Annabel Yao likes London, and Paris is also one of her favorite cities. This is where she participated in the Debutante Ball. But lately, the young woman has spent a lot of time in Shanghai.

Western style

Annabel stands out for her lifestyle and designer clothes. Her appearance and ambitions are absolutely western and very different from the reality of many Chinese women.

Her time in the United States

Even though Annabel Yao's father (the Huawei tech-giant from China) is in the middle of a trade war with the United States, she never minded celebrating the 4th of July with her American friends.

Busted! A selfie with an iPhone

In addition, she and her father are both fans of the American brand Apple. Yes, you're reading that right. While, of course, Annabel uses Huawei smartphones, but she has also been spotted with an iPhone.

Studying in times of corona

In the spring of 2020, Annabel posted more pictures from home and less from other places in the world. She was studying hard to complete her BA degree at Harvard, and because of the pandemic, she couldn't go anywhere.

Graduating in a pandemic

The official ceremony with the cap and gown, an event seniors in colleges across the world look forward to, was not in the stars for Annabel Yao. On Instagram she lamented the 'abrupt farewell' from her Alma Mater.

Annabel's graduation cake

Still, as may be expected for a billionaire heiress, Annabel Yao got her own graduation celebration.

Living the life!

And now, what's next for the daughter of the Huawei empire? She's got her computer science degree and should be ready to enter the tech industry. So far, though, it does not seem like the freshly minted computer scientist is doing any work at the Huawei office.

Annabel Yao: showbiz or Huawei?

Annabel Yao posts often about Christian Dior on her Instagram account. Is she planning on becoming a fulltime fashion influencer? Does Annabel prefer glitter and glamour over making cellphones?

Is Annabel Yao joining a pop group?

In August 2020, she appeared in a video and photos on Weibo with two other millionaire heiresses: the late casino magnate Stanley Ho's daughter Alice Ho and Sanpower chairman Yuan Yafei's daughter Donna Yuan. They wore identical blue and white outfits, did a dance together, and captioned one of the photos ‘Produce Camp 2020’ after a renowned talent show, TodayOnline reports.
