Two Filipino teens have been named on Time Magazine’s 2017 list of most influential teens.
14-year-old Filipina activist Shibby De Guzman made the list for this viral photo of her wearing this cardboard sign similar to those placed over the bodies of drug war victims.
The Filipino ninth grader hopes to rally even more young people to take action in the Philippines. She said that it is important that Filipinos know their rights and when authorities abuse them.
Also in the top 30 list is Filipino-American, Bretman Rock, of Hawaii.
The 19-year-old beauty vlogger is praised for his makeup skills, and even hosted the Miss Universe red carpet pre-show.
To be part of the list Time Magazine considered accolades across different fields, global impact through social media and over all ability to drive the news.
Also on the list are actors Elle Fanning, Jayden Smith, and “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown.
