#86 Tavi Gevinson: Our Past Online Selves
Excited to bring you today’s episode with the amazing Tavi Gevinson. I’ve followed her career for years, her fashion blog Style Rookie was one of the first blogs I ever read which she founded when she was 11. I also really enjoyed her TED talk she did back in 2012 all about being a teen and figuring stuff out. Tavi Gevinson is the Founder and Editor-In-Chief of the Rookie Magazine shifting her focus to pop culture and feminist discussion - it broke one-million page views within five days of launching in September 2011 when she was only 15 years old. She wanted to create a space for teen girls as she "couldn't find a publication for young people that respected its readers' intelligence, honestly addressed what they were going through, and had actual teens writing for it". She has also recently launched the Rookie Podcast in collaboration with MTV where she interviews artists who also answer advice and talk through Rookie type subjects. We chat about growing up online, accepting our past online selves and managing multiple different platforms.
