4/11: Leaders of the New School
PUBLISHING: SAVANNAH BRITT –
Named the world’s youngest magazine publisher, Britt started Girlpez Fashion Magazine at the age of 12. The Philadelphia native created the fashion zine to inspire young girls and be the go-to fashion and beauty resource for 12-16 year-olds. It started out as a printed publication, but transitioned to the Web to reach a greater audience. After school, the 16-year-old socialite can be seen interviewing designers or frequenting an exclusive event. She’s even been backed by the Teen Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Amy Astley. The young entrepreneur got her first taste of the publishing world when she penned and published a poem on www.poetry.com and its printed issue. Shortly after, she worked for a year as a writer for The Kitchen Table News.
