This week, AOL & Huffington Post celebrated the world’s top 100 Game Changers at Skylight Studios – 100 innovators, mavericks, visionaries, and leaders who are changing the way we look at the world and the way we live in it. Whether standing front and center in the spotlight or working under the radar, they have had a game-changing effect on their fields — and inspired others to follow in their footsteps.
The categories include Politics, Media, Entertainment, Culture, Style, Green, Business and Technology, Sports, World, Food and Travel, Education and Impact, and Healthy Living.
