Tavi Gevinson – Tavi’s Big Big World (At 17)

She’s been called the voice of her generation. The future of journalism. A style icon. A muse. Oh, and she’s still in high school.

Tavi Gevinson has gone from bedroom blogger to founder and editor-in-chief of website and print series, Rookie, in just a few years. Rookie attracted over one million views within a week of launching, and has featured contributors such as Lena Dunham, Thom Yorke, Joss Whedon, Malcolm Gladwell, and Sarah Silverman.

Watch this inspiring talk as Tavi discusses adversity, the creative process, her outlook on life, what inspires her, and the value of being a ‘fangirl.’
