JoJo Siwa was just named one of the most influential people in the world!
In case you missed it, the 17-year-old superstar was recognized in TIME’s 100 alongside some of the most iconic political leaders, artists and more. We couldn’t be prouder! You go, girl!
Following the well-deserved honor, JoJo — who is a record-breaking musician, multi-talented performer, and the face of a billion dollar brand — took to Instagram to thank her family for their support, her role models for inspiring her to achieve her dreams, and most importantly, her fans for giving her a reason to do what she does:
“The kids of today are why I love doing what I do. I promise to always be a good leader for the kids. I want them to grow up and make the world the most magical place ever,” she wrote.
