The daughter of probably the most controversial billionaire in the world right now -- George Soros -- Andrea has devoted most of her adult life to philanthropy.
In particular, Andrea started the Trace Foundation in 1993, which is devoted to improving the lives of the indigenous people of the northwestern Chinese province of Qinghai.
Qinghai province sits beside and is very much connected to the Tibet Autonomous Region, which means Soros the younger has also inherited her fair share of controversy.
The Trace Foundation has been accused of all manner of activities: It's a running-dog CIA front or a conduit for Soros to fund and abet revolution in Tibet.
Conspiracy theories aside, Andrea is also a founding partner and director of the Acumen Fund, a global venture fund that invests in entrepreneurial attempts to take on global poverty.
