Some of us look back on our teenage years as an awkward era of braces, acne and embarrassingly unrequited crushes—but not these kids.

Time magazine released its list of 2014's 25 Most Influential Teens, and let's just say these sub-20 superstars are certainly making an impact on the world! Malala Yousafzai, for example, just recently became the youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for her her tireless activism on behalf of women's education.

Rookie founder Tavi Gevinson, 18, also makes the list for having created an online magazine for teenage girls that gets roughly 3.5 million hits a month.

Kylie Jenner, 17, and Kendall Jenner, 18, made the cut as well, with Time citing their clothing and nail polish lines and young adult novel, Rebels: City of Indra, the Story of Lex and Livia. Kendall's individual success as a model is also factored in, as is Kylie announcing her own hair line.

There are many more familiar names on the list—like Austin Mahone, 18, Chloë Grace Moretz, 17, and not surprisingly, Lorde, 17.

Jaden Smith, 16, makes the list as well, with Time admitting "his real legacy may well be his Twitter musings, which are equal parts absurdist ("Anything You See In Any Magazine Ever Is Fake.") and insightful ("Once You Witness A Cycle Enough Times You Step Out Of It.')"

Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka, 14, lands a spot on the list, and unsurprisingly, so do first daughters Sasha Obama, 13, and Malia Obama, 16. There's also a young Modern Family star who makes the cut!
