Our EIC (& #GIRLBOSS) On Finding Her "Unheard Of" Career

2 comments

We can thank Sophia Amoruso for bringing the term #GIRLBOSS into our lexicon. But, at R29 we like to think that we've always been pretty familiar with the idea. Strong, trailblazing, badass women who run the show? Yep, we have a leader like that in our editor-in-chief, Christene Barberich. In the latest installment of Nasty Gal's Portrait Of A #GIRLBOSS, she divulges that she's been paving the way for her independence since nursery school. That's one boss baby.

"I didn't come from this super-creative and worldly family," CB tells us in the Nasty Gal video above. "To be a magazine editor was totally unheard of." Unheard of? Perhaps. Impossible? Hell no. Press play for more of Christene's personal road to creative fulfillment, success, and — perhaps most importantly — learning to let go of what other people think.
