Recently elected Atlanta city Mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms, has topped Inc. magazine’s list of  “18 inspiring women to watch in 2018.”

The national weekly magazine listed the city’s new major as No. 1, to be exact.

According to Biz Journals, Bottoms kicks off an impressive field of candidates. The magazine bragged about Bottoms’ “willingness to speak her mind, citing her mayor victory acceptance speech, specifically, Bottoms’ mention of changing the world.

“This campaign started around the kitchen table, with a group of women who didn’t have campaign experience but believed we could change the world,” she said.

Inc. mag isn’t the only list that recognized how outstanding of a person Bottoms is. The Atlanta Business Chronicle also listed Bottoms as one of Atlanta’s  18 movers and shakers  to pay attention to this year.

The full list of women housed on Inc.’s list can be found here.
