*It took me nearly every fibre in my body to refrain from finishing this sentence with “… I had some very good beer. Some very good beer I purchased with a fake ID. My name was Brian McGee. I stayed up listening to Queen.” (I hope you all get the Simpsons’ reference).
If you believe what the media has to say, you’d think that kids these days were a bunch of tech-savvy slackers. However, I don’t really think that this is the case. If you care to pay attention you may realise that there are some ambitious young individuals out there. One case in point: Sarah Silverman (not the comedian). This bright young thing has recently established her clothing line, Sarah Leora, with designs ranging from cute rompers to disco-ready dresses (see: Princess Shine dress). Did I mention that she’s only seventeen? SEVENTEEN. When I was seventeen* I was too busy freaking out over my final year of high school and playing way too much sport to even think about pursuing any artistic endeavours (although I wish I had). Anyway, if you have a spare minute or seventeen, be sure to show your support and check out her website and facebook page.
