Jenner sisters and Maisie Williams named most influential teens

Kim Kardashian's half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been named among the world's most influential teenagers.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars Kendall and Kylie have both been given a place on Time magazine's list of the 30 Most Influential Teens of 2015, alongside Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams and teenage star Zendaya Coleman.

Reality TV regular Kylie, 18, has been praised for her expansive social media presence, with the magazine's editors writing, "The former shy tween... is now arguably the most-watched teenager in the world, commanding an audience of 60 million people across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and her best-selling app."

"Everything I do, I always start these huge trends," Kylie says of the honour. "I just want to inspire my fans to be whoever they want to be because that's what I've always done."

Her model sister Kendall, 19, earned her place on the list due to her impressive resume of catwalk work and advertising campaigns.

Maisie made the cut for her long-running role in Game Of Thrones, as well as her part in U.K. sci-fi series Doctor Who.

Other stars who feature on the list include The Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg, 17, Will Smith's son Jaden, Modern Family's Ariel Winter, singer Shawn Mendes, Malia Obama, and 13-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler, who has appeared in a number of Sia's music videos.

Girls' education campaigner Malala Yousafzai has also been included on the list for her activism as well as 13-year-old entrepreneur Moziah Bridges.

Both Jenner sisters were mentioned on the 2014 list along with singer Lorde, Mad Men actress Kiernan Shipka, Chloe Grace Moretz, and singer Becky G,.
