Today in my teenage angst, we advance the current trend by a few years.

This is Tavi Gevinson. You probably know her from her blog Style Rookie as well as her online magazine for teens Rookie Mag. Over the past four years - btw she just turned 16 five days ago - she's been developing this online world that advocates deep thought and forward movement in and for teens. I've never heard someone so young, who is as articulate and intelligent as Tavi. I love her, not only for who she is, but what she represents; the power of teens to speak for change and actually make it.

This is a seven minute talk she did at the TedxTeen seminars. I think she's amazing. I'm turning 25 this year and while I don't currently have the mobility that she does, she inspires me to keep working toward it. To keep working toward a serious ability to speak for and make change. As she addresses identity as so difficulty developed in today's North American culture, listen for the truth she brings and advocates.
