TIME magazine today released its list of most influential teens and two not surprising DC sisters were part of the list.

Sasha Obama and Malia Obama are the only two local teens named to the list, which includes Malala Yousafzai, lead rider of the co-ed Afghan National Cycling Team Salam Kakar, Lorde, and Kendall (she dropped her last name) and Kylie Jenner of the Kardashian bunch.

“Social-media followings, cultural accolades, business acumen and more” were analyzed to determine this year’s 25 most influential teens. Read the full list here.

TIME writes of the younger Obama daughter, “Sasha, meanwhile, has become an icon in her own right: after being photographed in a unicorn sweatshirt, the style sold out at ASOS in a matter of days.”

Speaking of that sweater…Last November, FRESH FM morning show host Kelly Collis wrote ‘The Daily Mail Reporters Are Hacks‘ when “the rag” – as Collis refers to the Daily Mail in her post – made mention of the sweater Sasha wore without “crediting the station or myself as the source of the information.” FishbowlDC wrote about the controversy then here.
