Kim Kardashian has made her debut on Time magazine's Top 100 list of influential people, joining the likes of husband Kanye West, Hillary Clinton and ballet dancer Misty Copeland.

The 34-year-old mom, who has tens of millions of followers on social media sites like Instagram and Twitter, will have a special feature in the issue, written by Martha Stewart no less.

"[Kim] and her famous, entrepreneurial siblings — shepherded by a savvy, tireless matriarch — have also expanded the very definition of family," Stewart writes in the upcoming issue, hitting newsstands on April 17. "Kim comes across as an enviable big sister in a clan where everyone seems to love one another."

The annual list spotlights people who have significantly affected the world in the previous year. With subjects ranging from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to presidential hopeful Jeb Bush to actor Chris Pratt, the issue seeks to introduce readers to new influencers or encourage them to learn more about names they already know.

"In our annual TIME 100 issue, we tell 100 stories of individual influence," writes Time editor Nancy Gibbs. "But taken together, these stories are an anthem to interaction, the convergence that occurs when a good idea goes viral. ... Every year we hope the TIME 100 will introduce you to influential people you might not have met before and encourage you to find out more about them."
