Malala, Malia Obama among Times influencial teens list
New York, Nov 13: US President Barack Obama's elder daughter Malia and Pakistani girls' education activist Malala Yousafzai have been named among the 16 most influential teens of 2013 by Time magazine.

Time's list, out yesterday, comprises young singers, sports stars, technology and science whiz kids, authors and media icons who have become inspirations for youngsters across the world due to their spectacular achievements through their work and passion.

Malala's vocal activism for girls' right to education made her a target of the Taliban, who shot her in the head as she was returning home in her school bus in Pakistan last year.

From being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, winning the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought and a Clinton Global Citizen Award to discussing education rights with President Obama, meeting the Queen of England and addressing the United Nations, the 16-year-old has the world applauding her dreams, courage and vision.

"After surviving the attack, (Malala) didn't hide in fear but strengthened her voice. The world has been listening," Time said.

Malala had also met Malia when she visited the White House last month to meet President Obama and First Lady Michelle.

Two days ago, at NYC annual glamour women of the year awards Malala had wowed the audience. Though many celebrities were present at the function, it was Malala who charmed the audience the most. Teenage girls at the event had cheered Malala all through her speech, which clearly showed her popularity in the Western world.
