Sasha and Malia Obama share one of the top spots on Time magazine’s list of “The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014.” At the ages of 13 and 16 respectively, the Obama sisters have grown up in front of our eyes. Malia is a budding filmmaker and is rumored to be interested in attending Stanford. She also caused a stir this summer when she attended the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago. Sasha is also a figure in her own right. The fashion-forward Obama caused “unicorn-sweater hysteria” after the popular online retailer ASOS sold out of a sweater she was pictured wearing.
