She started out as a dreamer with a childlike faith, and now, she’s a notable YouTube personality with over 8 million subscribers (and still counting)! I am actually an avid viewer of her video tutorials, reviews, and blogs, and I can say she really loves what she does. Her nominations and awards just proved she’s no ordinary YouTube icon. Aside from her creative video editing skills, her voiceovers are also magical it makes you view more of her videos. She’s also an entrepreneur and makeup artist.

Almost everyone knows her brand and product line, but do you know the woman behind these elegant fashion pieces?

Eventually, it made a mark to the readers, and after a few years, it was recognized as one of the most visited beauty sites because of her in-depth product reviews and interviews with makeup artists and other beauty influencers. She also launched Glossier, a beauty brand that caters to the needs of a modern woman’s skin.

She’s the notorious RBG! She has survived two cancer bouts, continues to assert her place in a male-dominated Supreme Court, and promotes an insane workout. More than these, she’s famous for her dissents, no-holds-barred opinion, and crazy fight for women’s rights. Justice Ruth Brader Ginsburg should be every woman’s poster girl.
