19. Rico Rodriguez
Anyone who has watched Modern Family would most certainly know who Rico Rodriguez is, considering that he portrayed Manny Delgado in the sitcom that premiered on ABC back in 2009. The actor, who is 18 years old now, played an honest and sweet boy who is apparently very much like him. Much like his character was at that time, Rico is also in the 12th grade now. Despite being quite a successful actor now, Rico values education tremendously. Rico has even written a book titled “Reel Life Lessons … So Far,” which was published back in 2012. He has even spoken about the importance of literacy and reading. He recently teamed up with Pizza Hut for a Literacy Project in order to help children achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
18. Ashima Shiraishi
Ashima Shiraishi is a 15-year-old girl who can be best described as a rock climbing phenom. She has already won 17 national youth bouldering titles and has even earned a silver medal in the United States open bouldering championship. Therefore, it should not come as a surprise that she has been named to the United States youth bouldering team for this year. There should be remain no doubt she will end up bringing home some prestigious medal/title for her country. Ashima began climbing rocks back when she was just 6 years old and just out of curiosity. No one could have guessed that she would end up becoming a bouldering/rock climbing champion. She is not even muscular, rather she weighs 90 pounds and as a height of 5’1”, yet she is impressive when bouldering.
17. Jazz Jennings
Jazz Jennings may not be the most wealthiest kid on this list, but she is without a doubt one of the most powerful. Today, Jazz Jennings is a 16-year-old, but she happens to be transgender and was born male. In recent times, she has become both a television and YouTube personality, along with taking on the role of a spokesmodel and spokesperson for LGBTQ rights. She is one of America’s youngest transgender woman to receive national recognition to such an extent. Along with her widely popular YouTube channel, she even has her own show on TLC. This year, she also became the source of inspiration for the world’s transgender doll that has been modeled after her and resembles her. The “transgender” doll will arrive in America this summer.
16. Flynn McGarry
When it comes to the fine-dining scene in New York City, one of the youngest chefs out there is none other than 17-year-old FLynn McGarry. He rose to fame as a chef as he launched supper club in Los Angeles back when he was just 11 years old. Ever since, he has spent time in the kitchens of Alma, Alinea and Eleven Madison. Currently, he has his own chef’s counter within Kava at the European-style cafe Eureka, where he serves a 16-course tasting menu. The food he prepares are described as being delicious and imaginative. The tasting menu has a $160 price tag attached to it and anyone who wishes to pair a wine with it would have to spend an additional $90. Of course, Flynn himself is not yet old enough to drink, so he will just have to wait another year.
15. Phoebe Adele Gates
Phoebe Adele Gates is the youngest child and the second daughter of Bill and Melinda Gates., who was born on September 14th, 2002. Phoebe is currently one of the world’s richest heirs, which should be pretty obvious. Most people are probably assuming that Phoebe and her siblings are going to inherit in the billions, considering that their father’s $66 fortune keeps on growing with each passing day. However, according to Bill Gates, each of his children will receive $10 million, while the rest will go to charity. Even then, $10 million is definitely no small amount. Despite already being such a wealthy kid, she is still like any other teenager. Even though her dad is probably one of the most tech-savvy individuals out there, she only received a cell phone after she turned thirteen.
14. Quvenzhané Wallis
Many people likely feel that Quvenzhané Wallis grew up right before their very eyes. Quvenzhané was merely 9 years old when she was nominated for an Academy Award four years ago, for starring in 2012’s Drama/Fantasy film “Beasts of the Southern Wild.” However, back in June 2016 when she was attending the BET Awards, she looked quite like a growing teenager, which should be obvious considering that she is 13 years old now. However, the adorable actress looked almost unrecognizable in the photos taken at last year’s BET Awards. Just years ago, she used to be a cute kid, and it seems as if in just a matter of minutes, she has grown into a pretty, young teenager. She was dressed in a teal-colored shift dress, along with a set of pearls and white-colored flats, while she was also carrying a white-colored purse.
13. Kelly Xu

Over 17,000 children had tried to qualify for that championship, but merely 88 of them were fortunate enough to have been selected to play on one of the world’s most famous golf courses. While balancing the large trophy in her arms, Kelly described the memorable moment as the “best day of [her] life.” Apparently, she was very anxious and nervous before hitting the ball, but she calmed down after realizing that she had been playing this sport for quite a long time.

Also despite her extremely young age, her incredible IQ has enabled her to become a member of Mensa International, the world’s oldest IQ society that accepts only people with IQ above the 98th percentile or higher. Alexis and her parents currently reside in Phoenix, Arizona. Her parents actually find it pretty challenging to raise a child who has such a high IQ.

Mila Hager is the older of the two daughters of Jenna Bush Hager. Her mother Jenna is one of the two fraternal twin daughters of 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush and his wife Laura Bush, the former First Lady. Margaret Laura Hager was born in April 2013, adding another member to the Bush family line. Mila’s birth also marked the first time that George and Laura became grandparents. The Bush family was obviously “elated” by Mila’s birth. Of course, Mila is currently just 4 years old, so it is hard to imagine what kind of a career she may end up pursuing, whether it will be something political like her grandfather. Apparently, babies in the Bush family are often named after their predecessors. Much like her mother and aunt, Mila was also named after her grandmothers.
Margaret Laura was born on 13th April, 2013. She is the baby doll of Jenna Bush Hager and Henry Hager, and the granddaughter of former President George W. Bush. The famous parents and grandparents have been the reason behind the powers Margaret will own when she grows up.
