Tavi Gevinson is an American writer, magazine editor, entrepreneur, and actress who came into the spotlight in 2008, when at the age of 12, she had started a fashion blog titled Style Rookie. The blog later turned, in 2011, into an online magazine called Rookie, of which Tevi was the founder and co-editor. The magazine, in addition to fashion, also touched themes like pop culture and feminism and was targeted at teenage girls, being written mainly by teenage girls.
