Billie Eilish and Simone Biles on list of most influential people in the world

What do singer Billie Eilish, gymnast Simone Biles and Dutch politician Frans Timmermans have in common? They‘re all on the list of 100 most influential people in the world. The US magazine Time compiles the list every year.

So the list is all people who have changed the world a little bit. And that can be in any way, for example with your music like Billie Eilish.

Or by being an example for others, such as gymnast Simone Biles. During the summer Olympics, she talked about her mental problems. A lot of people thought it was good to tell them about that.


There are world leaders on the list as well. Including a striking one: Abdul Ghani Baradar. He is one of the leaders of the Taliban, the terrorist group that has taken over power in Afghanistan.
