As Danielle states in her article tooting the new year; Get Motivated. I find it motivating to read the biographies of genuinely amazing individuals, particularly youth… and they just keep coming. Whether you are in need of some inspiration or simply enjoy learning, there are some incredible people out there. Take Tavi Gevinson for example. At the age of 16, she has already established her name as a media mogul. Her magazine Rookie is targeted towards teenage girls but some of the content is definitely for all audiences. Reading her interview with CNN, I think her precocity lends itself to her forthright yet inconceited manner. She knows that we are supposed to “feel confident and feel misunderstood”, that we are the “cheerleader and the art kid”. I find her genuineness really likeable. It has made me realize that I don’t hear that much “voice” that often anymore, so kudos to this 21st century lady.
