CNN Young People Who Rock

Under 30 and Impressive

There's a great blog on CNN's website called Young People Who Rock, where the CNN Anchor Nicole Lapin focuses on remarkable people under age 30. She interviews a person or group with various accomplishments — it's refreshing and inspirational to read news about young people in a positive spotlight!

She recently interviewed 26-year-old Cecelia Ahern who wrote her first novel, P.S. I Love You when she was just 21 years old — Cecelia has one motivated and mature mind! I don't know about you, but when I was 21 I was just discovering my talents never mind completing a best-selling, self-discovery novel. She banked $1 million for publishing the tearjerker and of course I'm left wondering how she's handling her wealth! I'm planning on seeing the movie based on her book this weekend, and I know I'll enjoy it more because I know a bit about the brains behind the book.

You can click here to nominate yourself or someone else who you think rocks.
