Washington Life’s The Young and The Guest List is an annual guide of the up and coming young residents of the D.C. area. This year marks the 7th anniversary of the list and features the promising hopefuls that could potentially help run our nation’s capital, if they do not already. With so many successful young people inhabiting our glorious city, the unyielding decision of whom makes the cut has grown to become even more difficult as the years have passed us by.

Although deciding who has truly earned a spot is an arduous job, someone has to do it. That is why we leave it up to an anonymous committee that is in charge of creating the sought-after list of influential people under the age of 40.

This year’s The Young and The Guest List includes members of all spectrums of society, including politicians, athletes, writers, entrepreneurs and many more. While some of them may not be household names, give it time, for this crowd is sure to make its mark on society.
