Dreaming about what you want to be when you grow up or dreaming about what you will do when you are an adult are common things that young people do. Yet, these three young ladies are not waiting until adulthood to make a mark on the world right now. From TV stars to activists, Popsugar has named their top 20 most influential young women of 2020 and some of our BCK favorites are on their list.
Take a look at who they are celebrating. These young women are already a force of nature and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for each and every one of them!
Actress, producer, buisness-owner, this 15-year-old is has already made history and doesn’t look like she is on the path to slowing down anytime soon. She made her mark as the youngest executive producer ever for a major film and continues to find amazing, groundbreaking projects to invest in as well.
What’s next on her radar? Well, the head of Genius Productions is working on an adaptation of the novel, Amari and the Night Brothers, and we cannot wait!
Year after year, Willow Smith continually reinvents herself, and we are awe-struck every time. From activist to musician, to fashion goddess, this talented young lady has made a name for herself outside of that of her famous family. Smith is an advocate for mental health and climate change, encouraging true action among members of generation Z and beyond.
What’s next on her radar? Well, after releasing her third album and touring with her brother, Smith has started a band with Tyler Cole. We are waiting with baited breath to hear some new music!

This is my water filter. My filter can bring clean safe water to communities dealing with a lead crisis (Like Flint, MI and Newark, NJ). It's powered by @hydroviv_h2o. No more having to go out and purchase hundreds of bottles of water, no more waiting in long lines and disrupting your daily life to insure you have clean safe water. Every $1 donated provides the equivalent of 160 bottles of water. gofundme.com/f/TeamMariWater
This 12-year-old, known as “Little Miss Flint,” is a well-known activist that shined a massive spotlight on the water crisis in Flint, MI. From there, she has gone on to continue to champion for clean water for her community and beyond. Additionally, Copney has helped raise funds for students in need. She has set her sites on one day running for president, and we know that she has definitely got our vote!
What’s next on her radar? She is still using her influence to bring attention to the water crisis in her community. And of course, in 2044, she’s going to make sure that her name appears on the ballot!
