Founder & CEO, Crisis Text Line
As the CEO of DoSomething.org, the largest organization for teens and social change in the world, Nancy Lublin is able to name all four members of One Direction without a smidge of sarcasm. An expert on youth, social media and pop culture, brands like Pepsi and Chase and several tech startups have sought her advice. In 2013, Lublin started Crisis Text Line, the first 24/7, free, nationwide text line for teens. Previously, Lublin turned a $5,000 inheritance into Dress for Success, which helps women transition from welfare to work in more than 125 cities in 15 countries.
