Whoever said our generation was lazy should really think again!

Teens and young adults around the globe make the world a better place every day by inventing new technologies, inspiring other young people, developing charities, and much more!

1. Rowan Blanchard, 15

hair, person, hairstyle, photography, beauty,

You might know her as the spunky star of Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World" but since accruing more fame, she's put her popularity to good use by raising awareness about the importance of intersectional feminism.

Well-known feminists such as Emma Watson have also shown Rowan support, and in 2015 she spoke at the UN’s Women Annual Summit.

And get this—she was only 14!

2. Ahmed Mohomad, 15

person, man, people, male, senior citizen,

Last year, this boy genius made news when school authorities assumed the home-made clock he had created was actually a bomb.

The outrageous accusation sparked a national conversation about racial profiling in schools.

Ahmed stayed strong throughout the process, and eventually got accepted into a prestigious school in Qatar.

3. Amandla Stenberg, 17

hair, face, person, woman, black hair,

She may have lost in The Hunger Games, but Amandla is winning in life!

Like Rowan, she uses her fame to raise awareness about an issue that’s important to her: appropriation of black culture.

4. Bindi Irwin, 17

Do you remember everyone’s favorite Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin?

Well, at age 17, his daughter is following in his famous footsteps.

While Bindi isn’t hunting any crocodiles, she is advocating for conservation efforts and last year she shined on Australia’s Dancing With the Stars.2

5. Olivia Hallisley, 18

This brilliant teen is helping make the world healthy again.

She discovered a treatment for Ebola that doesn’t require refrigeration—much more effective for victims of the virus in rural Africa.

Her accomplishments didn’t go unnoticed;

Olivia was recognized in the 2015 Google Science Fair.

6. Katie Ledecky, 19

sports,

With the olympics behind her, this female Michael Phelps is Stanford-bound!
