Lydia Ko has made TIME's list of the 25 most influential teens for the second year in a row. She is the only ethnic Korean on the list. "After going pro last year, Ko now ranks third among women golfers worldwide, sparking interest in the sport 'not just in her native South Korea and adopted homeland of New Zealand but also among juniors across the globe,' as golf legend Annika Sorenstam wrote in this year's Time 100," the magazine said.
This year's list also included Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan, student activist Joshua Wong, one of the key figures at the center of Hong Kong's pro-democracy protests, and the U.S. President's two daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama.
