Tavi Gevinson is an American fashion blogger who started blogging at the age of eleven. She got discovered by The New York Times (that’s, like, the biggest news paper EVER!!)
So, Tavi came to the State Library of Victoria. There were five girls there who spoke about their motivation to become or do what they want to do. Some of them were told by lots of people (even their own PARENTS) that their ambition won’t make them any money or get them very far in life.
But they persisted and they ended up succeeding!
They and Tavi were all so inspiring!
After the girls talked, we went on and did some mind maps collages. We just took bits and pieces from lots of different magazines. Some people were lucky enough to find a Women’s Weekly from the 50’s! (I, however, was NOT one of those peopleboo – hoo!) I grabbed some random but awesome stuff, because it pretty much describes, well, me! Random but Awesome!
I got her signature somewhere on my notebook ()with the “special Pen” (Tayger’sgold pen that is called that because an internationally famous fashion blogger used it) but then it didn’t show up so we just used a blue pen.
The talk was more directed at teenagers, but it was appealing to the “tweens age 10-12”age category too.
This was attended on Saturday 24th August.
There are articles about Tavi online too – search via Google.
Her online site for teens –Rookie Magazine is at http://rookiemag.com
