"Awards like this aimed at young people are particularly exciting as they honor a whole new generation of writers — and this generation is definitely not made up of only rich white guys. This year’s list includes a diverse range of ethnicities, and four out of five of the honorees are women. I don’t know about you, but for me this more than counters the feeling of jealousy that I get whenever young people are credited for having done more with their life than watch 10 hours of Netflix a day."
