Malala Yousafzai and Barack Obama’s elder daughter, Malia, are on Time magazine’s list of 16 most influential teens of 2013.
Time magazine’s list, published Tuesday, took young people who have inspired the society by their work in various fields like music, sports, technology, science, writing and media.
The magazine said that Malia Obama, 15, and her sister, Sasha, act with the poise of adults.
“President Obama often mentions his daughters in speeches, and says that they influenced his stance on gay marriage,” the magazine said.
Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai, 16, was a target because of her vocal activism to better the education of girls under Taliban rule, Time said.
After surviving the attack, Malala Yousafzai didn’t hide in fear but strengthened her voice, it added.
Malala Yousafzai received the Sakharov Prize and Clinton Global Citizen Award this year for freedom of speech.
She was also nominated for the Nobel Peace prize 2013.
Others who figured on Time’s list are: singers Lorde, 17, and Justin Bieber, 19, actors Kiernan Shipka, 14, Chloe Grace Moretz, 16 and Hailee Steinfeld, 16, authors Maya Van Wagenen, 15, and Beth Reekles, 17, technology whizkid Nick D’Aloisio, 18, Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin, 18, fashion icon Dante de Blasio, 16, Romanian scientist Ionut Budisteanu, 19, Kendell and Kylie Jenner, 18 & 16, Lydia Ko, 16 .
