Who doesn’t love NYLON’s It-Girl Supreme, Tavi Gevinson? She’s a superstar to young and adult audiences alike for her unique style, intersectional feminist wisdom, and ability to find words for the feelings others rarely can. Despite her young rise to fame, Gevinson didn’t shoot to the top overnight. She’s a testament to the success that’s borne from hard work, dedication, and an unbreakable commitment to constantly and shamelessly being oneself.
She’s the best kind of person to look up to because she never aims for perfection. In fact, she embraces imperfection and it shows in her writing. She’s not afraid to let readers into her world, a world like so many of ours; full of love, fear, confusion, frustration, exhilaration, self-discovery, and complicated emotions that can’t be summed up with one word. The topics of her writing vary, but what remains the same is the tone of her writing. It almost always feels like the kind of brilliant nighttime conversation that easily lasts into the morning hours before you pass out from exhaustion.
