The subjects that don’t make the cut can usually be described as “someone doing something interesting.” Conversely, Renegades are not only doing something interesting, but working around obstacles to make a mark on their field, their community, or the world at large.

As always, it’s important for there to be some action to these stories. Renegades need to have more than just a great idea; they need to be making tangible progress that you can describe in vivid, gripping detail in your profile.
