There are so many celebrities in the world today—from pop stars to sports stars to movie stars and tons more—that sometimes it’s hard to keep up. But there are only a handful out there making a difference in their field, whether it’s through innovation, advocacy, or sheer creativity. From models to musicians and everything in between, these influencers stand apart for their accomplishments both in real life and on social media this year.
