Want to feel old? or like you’ve haven’t accomplished enough in your life and even your 1000 or so Twitter followers don’t mean much? Browse Time’s new list of the 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014. For this year’s list the magazine analyzed “cultural accolades, business acumen” and the benchmark of teenage influence: social-media followings, duh.
While we’re blown away and utterly inspired by names such as Flynn McGarry, anexperimental chef,Malala Yousafzai, thePakistani activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner, and scientist, Ciara Judge, Emer Hickey and Sophie Healy-Throw, who discovered a new organism that could help the global food crisis. We were surprised to see the youngest “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” stars, Kylie and Kendall Jenner made the cut.
But give credit where credit is deserved, like their older siblings, the girls have a mini empire in the works including clothing and nail polish lines, a young adult novel, and of course Kendall lucrative modeling career (she walked the runway for designers such as Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana). Mama Kris must be proud.
