We	
  like	
  to

  • 8. BUILD A BETTER FUTURE...Shubham Banerjee "I  just  wanted  to  help  the  visually  impaired.  I  had  a  Lego  Robotics  kit,  so  I  asked,  'Why  not  just   try  that?” Not  your  typical  Silicon  Valley  start  up  and  not  your  typical  teenager.  This  was  Banerjee’s   response  when  he  realized  the  cost  of  Braille  machines  and  promptly  founded  Braigo  labs  to   ensure  they  were  more  accessible  to  all. It’s  a  cause  that  computer  giant  Intel  have  backed,  making  Banerjee  the  youngest  ever  recipient   of  venture  capital    and  helping  him  land  Time  Incs.  “Innovation  of  the  Year”  for  2014.   "Shubham  Banerjee  is  among  a  couple  dozen  entrepreneurs  who  received  funding   from  Intel  Capital  on  Tuesday,  but  he  is  probably  the  only  one  whose  father  had  to   drive  him  there"   Silicon Valley Business Journal MOST LIKELY TO
  • 9. RUN FOR PRESIDENT...Asean Johnson Johnson  became  somewhat  of  an  internet  sensation  after  a  video  of  his  speech  protesting  school   closures  in  Chicago  went  viral,  a  popularity  that  grew  even  further  after  his  rousing  display   during  2013’s  Realize  the  Dream  march,  aged  just  9  years  old. Some  tip  him  as  a  future  Mayor  of  Chicago  in  2025  -­‐  when  he  will  have  just  turned  21,  he  hopes   to  become  a  politician  or  scientist  with  a  particular  interest  in  preserving  our  water  supplies  -­‐   all  this  while  managing  his  honors  workload  in  5th  grade! “I  am  marching  for  education,  justice  and  freedom.  All  over  the  country  public   education  is  under  attack.  Every  school  deserves  equal  funding  and  resources.” Asean Johnson MOST LIKELY TO

Seen  as  the  anti-­‐thesis  to  the  “dumbed  down”  or  over  sexualized  path  many  of  her  peers   embody,  she’s  been  named  Billboards  new  queen  of  alternative  and  has  been  celebrated  for   forging  her  own  path  on  the  way  to  global  success. "But  the  popularity  of  Pure  Heroine  suggests  all  is  not  lost.  It  says  there's  still  an   intellectual,  polished  and  important  place  for  pop,  that  doesn't  rely  on  open  letters,   open  legs,  Twitter,  twerking  and  obscenely  desperate  electro  hooks” Clash Magazine MOST LIKELY TO

Her  hand-­‐heat  powered  “Hollow  Torch”  has  been  hailed  as  a  stroke  of  genius  and  has  gone  a   long  way  to  solving  this  problem  and  providing  a  giant  leap  forward  for  thermo-­‐electricity. 3  Ted  Talks  and  an  appearance  on  Jimmy  Fallon  later  sees  her  continuing  to  work  on  improving   her  3lashlights  brightness  and  ef3iciency  and  looks  to  shine  a  light  on  everyone’s  world! “I  was  always  taking  garbage  from  around  the  house,  taking  things  apart  and  putting   them  together.  I  just  wanted  to  make  things  better.” Ann Makosinski MOST LIKELY TO
  • 12. MOST LIKELY TO FEED THE WORLD...Ciara Judge, Emer Hickey and Sophie Healy-Thow Inspired  by  stories  they  had  read  about  the  2011  famine  in  the  Horn  of  Africa,  these  three  county   Cork  natives  looked  for  ways  they  could  try  and  help  to  improve  food  production  world  wide.

The  trio  took  home  the  grand  prize  at  this  years  Google  Science  Fair  and  in  the  process  have   unearthed  3indings  that  will  aid  the  global  food  poverty  battle  immeasurably. “The  girls  determined  that  the  bacteria  could  be  used  to  speed  up  the  the  germination   process  of  certain  crops,  like  barley  and  oats,  by  50  percent,  potentially  helping  fulGill   the  rising  demand  for  food  worldwide.  Oh—and  they’re  16  years  old.” GoogleBlog, September 22nd 2014
  • 13. MAKE A STAND...Joshua Wong Wong  -­‐  along  with  schoolmate  and  friend  Ivan  Lam  -­‐  established  Scholarist  in  2011  to  protest   against  “moral  and  national  education”  curriculum  proposed  in  his  native  Hong  Kong.  The  call  was   heard  by  over  100,000  protestors  and  the  plans  were  promptly  withdrawn  while  Wong  received   acclaim  and  notoriety  in  equal  parts  for  his  role. Earlier  this  year,  he  was  detained  for  40  hours  for  his  role  in  the  student  protests  against  the   NPCSC’s  decision  on  the  proposed  electoral  reform. He  remains  the  face  of  this  political  activism,  all  the  while  insisting  that  the  real  heroes   are  “every  Hong  Kong  citizen.” “He’s  so  young  but  so  wise  that  you  can’t  help  but  have  a  lot  of  time  for  him  …  He  is   every  mother’s  son  –  Gilial,  polite,  principled,  hard-­‐working. Michael Vidler, Human Rights Lawyer MOST LIKELY TO
  • 14.

When  LaPlante  grows  up  he’s  focusing  on  something  simple...on  being  happy  -­‐  something  he   feels  many  14  year  olds  -­‐  like  him  -­‐  aren’t  being  prepared  for. The  3lexibility  and  creativity  his  “hacked”  education  and  schedule  has  afforded  him  have  seen   him  pursue  competitive  skiing,  intern  and  later  design  for  Big  Truck  Brand  and  spread  the   HackSchooling  approach  wherever  he  goes! “They  (hackers)  are  innovators,  they  challenge  and  change  the  systems  to  make  them   work  differently,  to  make  them  work  better” Logan Laplante MOST LIKELY TO
  • 15. MAKE SOME NOISE...Unlocking The Truth Malcolm  Brickhouse,  13,  Jarad  Dawkins,  12,  and  Alec  Atkins,  13  have  had  a  passion  for  Metal   since  they  were  seven  years  old. However,  growing  up  in  Flatbush,  Brooklyn.  Birthplace  to  established  rappers  such  as  Talib   Kweli  and  Busta  Rhymes,  it  isn’t  the  most  obvious  rise  to  musical  notoriety. Neither  is  leveraging  Times  Square  performances  -­‐  that  subsequently  went  viral  -­‐  into  becoming   the  youngest  artists  ever  signed  to  Sony  in  a  $1.8  million  deal. But  then  these  aren’t  your  average  teenagers  and  they’re  certainly  not  your  average  band! “Music  is  music,  and  as  long  as  you  can  express  yourself  in  a  way  that  you  think  is  good   for  people  to  hear  then  it’s  something  you  should  do.  I  wish  everybody  could  not  be   afraid  to  do  the  things  they  want  to  do.” Jarad Dawkins, Unlocking the Truth MOST LIKELY TO

TO KEEP IT REAL...Julia Bluhm Using  Change.org  as  a  platform  and  having  heard  too  many  of  her  peers  in  ballet  class  commenting   on  their  own  weight,  enough  was  enough  for  Julia  Bluhm.   Her  petition  “Seventeen  Magazine:  Give  Girls  Images  of  Real  Girls”  urged  the  magazine  to  re-­‐think   the  imagery  it  was  purporting  and  think  on  the  consequences  of  their  actions. As  a  result  of  the  80,000+  signatures  her  cause  attracted,  Seventeen  Magazine  pledged  to  “celebrate   every  kind  of  beauty”  by  ensuring  they  use  only  real  images,  girls  and  models  within  their  pages  -­‐  a   huge  step  forward  which  has  now  been  widely  adopted  by  other  major  publications. As  for  Julia,  she  harbors  dreams  of  becoming  a  professional  ballet  dancer  but  continues  to  have  her   voice  heard  as  a  contributor  to  the  SPARK  movement  and  blog!
