Once again, Time magazine has chosen President Obama as its Person of the Year.

“We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes,” Time managing editor Richard Stengel said in announcing its choice. “And Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America.”

The short list for the honor included Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager who was shot in the head for advocating for girls’ education, as well as Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Italian physicist Fabiola Giannati.

Obama also received the honor in 2008, when he was President-elect.
