Pop queen, fashion icon, and winner of over 271 awards, Taylor Swift is a once in a lifetime talent. Born on October 13, 1989, Swift made her childhood dream of becoming a music star into a reality. Since becoming a musician, she has created one chart-topping album after the next. However, although Swift has had platinum record-selling success, she has proven that it has not taken away from her message.
Swift continues to “be herself” through her fierce nature, and shows youth, specifically teenage girls, the importance of being true to yourself and your friends. Swift has set a new standard for what it means to be a musician in the 21st century.
