These Teens Made Sure 2016 Was A Year To Remember For Some Extraordinary Reasons
Nathaniel Wood

Whitney Houston said it best: the children are our future. Lucky for us, the kids prove that they're more than alright every day all across the internet. In a year filled with what seemed to be a constant stream of horrifying news popping into our timelines, these teens brought some much-needed warm, hilarious, wacky, heartwarming beams of light. Let's take a look ten of the highlights.

1. The girl who summed up our 2016 feelings perfectly.

17-year-old Harpreet Nijjar made us LOL and say "same" when she opened up her book to study for final exams and promptly said "absolutely not." We feel you, girl.

2. This high school-school-stunner-turned-Covergirl.

James Charles inspired us all to be unapologetically extra when he brought his own ring light to his senior photos to make sure that his beautfiful highlight popped juuuuust right. No wonder he's the first (flawless!) male face of Covergirl.

3. The boy who said 'no' to his parents' homophobic disapproval...

...and secretly took his boyfriend to prom. Myren and his boyfriend inspired with their bravery when they refused to miss out on prom night together because of their parents' (and some of their classmates') disapproval. “When we were dancing together I teared up some because there were times where I never thought we would go to prom...but there we were," he told Buzzfeed. There they were indeed, and looked so dapper at that. Go Myren!
