I don’t know much about Tavi Gevinson yet but stumbling across her TED video sure made me want to take the time to learn. I’m a huge TED freak. I have that APP on every gadget I own and Tivo the show too. I can’t get enough of those amazing talks. I was lucky enough to stumble across her TED video while on TED watching another talk.
I knew her name from my fashion interests but never took her seriously since she was so young. Boy was I wrong to do that. She gives me hope. I thought most all teen girls now a days just wanted to be some vacuous porn star with big fake boobs or, god forbid, Snookie. Then I see this adorable girl who actually has a brain & artistic style. I wish I was 1/2 as together as she is when I was her age! She must have an amazing family behind her that supports her education and artistic endeavors. How lucky she is for that too!
Below is her TED Teens video. I want to only post positive things on my blog and this girl fits right in.
