Margaret Zhang, creator of ShineByThree.com, is currently on a mission of world domination. The 22 year-old Australian bombshell is a fashion blogger, photographer, stylist, writer, and creative consultant for brands like Uniqlo, Nike and Louis Vuitton. And if that wasn’t impressive enough for you, the ambitious girl is also a law student at the University of Sydney. #YouGoGirl
Margaret created Shine by Three when she was 16 years old, and has since gained over 488k followers on Instagram.#Impressive
Zhang chatted with Refinery 29, where she dished on her work ethic and not being confined by age.
“I think the paradigm has to change,” she says. “So many people are told by their parents, or society, or their school career advisors, that this is how you [succeed]: You do well in high school, then you get into college, then you get an internship, and then you get a 9-to-5 job. It’s impossible to apply that same model now, and it’s important not to be restricted by age.” While Zhang’s success story may be an atypical one, her sentiment rings true for many of the self-starters in our generation. And as we chatted, she was quick to point out that she is so much more than the clothes on her back. “I pride myself so much in my brand and work, rather than what I look like,” she says.
