She only just celebrated her 16th birthday over the weekend but has been been a major influential figure in the lives of thousands of women for around 5 years now. If you have not heard of young fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson then you have been missing out. She sits front and centre with the likes of Anna Wintour at the worlds most expensive fashion shows as a guest of honour and is the founder, editor and a writer for Rookie Mag – an online magazine for teenage girls which she founded last September, an extension to Style Rookie her globally successful blog and one of the world’s top websites.
It is clear that this young business savvy teen is just starting out in her career, she is a strong, independent woman and a thought leader. Last month she gave a TEDx Teen Talk around the topics of strong women and feminism – it is thought provoking, inspiring and something both men and women can learn from.
Her startup Rookie Mag is still in it’s early stages and it is obvious that before too long she will sit over a publishing powerhouse for teens not too different to Australian website Mamamia – Keep an eye on her, she is going to be around for a very long time.
