You -- and why you are important
June 29, 2007

Around you, today around you are talent hunts, singing competitions, dancing divas. Everywhere you go, the ordinary guys and girls are becoming stars in their own right.

Gone are days of success being dependant on family of birth or education. Talent and determination is what gets you ahead. You are your most important influence and therefore you are an MTV & Pepsi Youth Icon 2007 nominee.

This nomination has received a lot of interest. Today's youth no longer want to ape or be like someone. They want to achieve the goals they have set for themselves and want to succeed on their own terms.

VJ Ranvijay, for example, became an MTV veejay because of his participation and experience in another MTV programme. He understands how important his individuality is; his success & fame is attributed to his own talent and determination.
