TIME: 30 MOST INFLUENTIAL TEENS Of 2015!!!

Most Influential Teens 2015 Malia Obama
MALIA OBAMA

MALIA OBAMA is the elder First Daughter of our POTUS And FLOTUS, Mr. and Mrs. BARACK And MICHELLE OBAMA!!! 

MALIA  is now a full-fledged cultural icon, whose fashion choices and college visits (most recently, to Brown University) routinely make headlines.

It is for these reasons and so many more that MALIA has made the list of TIME: The 30 MOST INFLUENTIAL TEENS In The WORLD Of 2015.

Let's see who else made the cut:


Most Influential Teens 2015 Ahmed Mohamed.
AHMED MOHAMED

Not many people make national news by bringing a homemade clock to school. But the ninth grader’s arrest, after teachers and authorities mistook said clock for a bomb, kicked off a national debate over racial profiling—and a outpouring of support for Mohamed, who was personally invited to the White House by President Obama (who called his clock “cool”). In October, he accepted a full scholarship to a prestigious school in Qatar.


Most Influential Teens 2015 Amandla Sternberg
AMANDA STEINBERG

The actress is best known as Rue from The Hunger Games series—a role that earned her an NAACP Image Award nomination and a Teen Choice Award—but she doesn’t just take part in pop culture, she actively critiques it. For a school history project, she and another classmate made a video called “Don’t Cash Crop My Cornrows” that was widely covered by the media and examined how white “pop stars and icons adopted black culture as a way of being edgy” while staying silent on issues such as police brutality. Stenberg is unafraid to call out celebrities she thinks are appropriating culture: in July she criticized Kylie Jenner—also on this list—for showing off her cornrows on Instagram but failing to use her “position of power to help black Americans.” 


Most Influential Teens 2015 Moziah Bridges
MOZIAH BRIDGES

The Memphis resident started his own bow tie business, Mo’s Bows, at age 9. Now—thanks in part to an appearance on the investment show Shark Tank—he’s running a $200,000-a-year apparel company touting licensing deals with Cole Haan and Neiman Marcus. Bridges’ latest accomplishment? Supplying bow ties to basketball players at the 2015 NBA draft.


Most Influential Teens 2015 Malala Yousafzai
MALALA YOUSAFZAI

Three years after being shot by the Taliban while going to school in her native Pakistan, Yousafzai is now a fierce advocate for girls’ education. In the months following her Nobel Peace Prize award, the He Named Me Malalasubject spoke at the U.N. General Assembly, appealed for the release of the schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram, and launched the #BooksNotBullets campaign to encourage politicians to redirect some military spending toward global education. On July 12—her 18th birthday—she traveled to a Syrian refugee camp in Lebanon to open a school. “Spending time with Malala Yousafzai made me stronger,” wrote Mezon Almellehan, a Syrian refugee, inthis year’s Time 100. “She suffered, and yet she continues to fight for what she believes in—for the rights of children and for their education.”


Most Influential Teens 2015 Silento
SILENTO

Six months ago, barely anyone had heard of Silentó (real name: Richard Lamar Hawk), an aspiring rapper from Stone Mountain, Georgia. That all changed on June 25, 2015, when the rising high school senior dropped the video for his first single, “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)”—an infectious clip centered around popular hip-hop dance moves. (He says he came up with the idea while entertaining classmates at lunch.) Within a week, the video had earned roughly 2.5 million views. By mid-October, it had logged more than 300 million, spawning countless parodies and celebrity imitations and eventually reaching Number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Next up for its multiplatinum singer? Attending college, where he plans to study business.



Most Influential Teens 2015 Zendaya
ZENDAYA

The former Disney Channel star (full name: Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman) has emerged as a champion of body positivity, schooling E!’s Giuliana Rancic earlier this year for mocking Zendaya’s dreadlocks at the Oscars and sharing unretouched versions of a magazine photoshootwith her 14.1 million Instagram followers. Recently, Mattel debuted a custom Barbie modeled after Zendaya’s Oscars look, meant to honor “a moment of confidence that was so positively received.” 



Most Influential Teens 2015 Jaden Smith
JADEN SMITH

Sure, Will Smith’s son gets the most attention for enigmatic pronouncements—telling the New York Times that “school is not authentic because it ends,” for example, or tweeting “Kanye For President” to his 5.7 million followers. But he’s also making waves in the music industry. After dropping digital EP This is the Album earlier this year, Smith signed on to host his own radio show on Apple’s Beats 1
