Tavi Gevinson started a fashion blog called Style Rookie at the age of 11, and what began as a fun pastime quickly garnered a lot of attention.
Tavi is now 16 years old, and only five years after beginning Style Rookie, she's a notable voice in the fashion industry, with a large following for her style guide.
She is now Editor-in-Chief of the online publication Rookiemag.com, an internet favorite of teens across the nation.
She built a positive self-image by creating something she's passionate about, and we can't think of a better reason to pursue your passions. Thank you, Tavi, for paving the way for young girls everywhere.
