Every year Forbes makes people like me feel inadequate when they announce their annual list of 30 Under 30—the hottest young people out there in the world making waves right now. Six hundred of the “brightest young entrepreneurs, breakout talents, and change agents” are highlighted in 20 different categories including art and style, Hollywood, science, and finance. While some categories, like sports and consumer tech, have a lot more men on the list than women, females represented well overall. Below are 20 ladies we admire, all under the age of 30, who were given the honor of being one of the 30 Under 30 in their respective fields. For the complete list, head to Forbes.
