With this issue, we launch the TIME 100 Next, a new list—part of an ongoing expansion of our flagship TIME 100 franchise—that spotlights 100 rising stars who are shaping the future of business, entertainment, sports, politics, science, health and more. The TIME 100 Next members all have grand ambitions, and they know they may face even greater setbacks.

I remember being floored by how fanatical these Redditors were—not only about Glossier and its products, but about Emily. These people felt connected to her as if they knew her personally.
