Flint, MI -- Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha has become an icon in the Flint water crisis.

Her research helped shine a light on the issue in Flint and the lead poisoning of its children.

Hanna-Attisha is in the running to be on Time Magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

You can vote for Hanna-Attisha here.

Other people on the list include Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and the Koch brothers.

Hanna-Attisha said she's still processing the fact her name is held in such high regard.

"All these incredible, influential people in the world, and I'm in contention on the same list," Hanna-Attisha said. "So it's mind-boggling, to even be considered, it's humbling, it's absolutely humbling."

Voting ends on April 10 and the list will be announced April 21.
