Author, Speaker, Millennial Expert & Former Editor-in-Chief of Seventeen, Ann Shoket has been a key architect in shaping the national conversation about and for millennial women. We caught up with Ann and got to ask her a few questions for this week’s #TiffinTuesdays

Name: Ann Shoket

What is your favorite color? Red

What is your favorite song? Little Red Corvette, Prince

What is your favorite book? Tiny Beautiful Things, Cheryl Strayed

What is your favorite movie? The Princess Bride

What is your favorite thing about living in NYC? Everything!

What is your most memorable celebrity interaction/experience? Oprah! I was on her show!

What was your biggest take away from being the editor-in-chief at Seventeen Magazine?
Millennial women are changing what it means to be powerful and successful in the world for everyone. Forever.

What/Who inspired you to write The Big Life?
The young women who grew up with me at Seventeen, the young women who sat at my dining room table during two years of Badass Babes Dinners, the young women who reach out to me voraciously on social for advice to achieve and succeed.

What keeps you motivated when you go to speaking events, etc.?
When women share their stories it can change the world. The connection with the audience gives me life!

Since you will be speaking at Tiffin University during Women’s History Month, what woman is most inspiring to you?
My grandmothers. They worked and built families at a time when women had many fewer options than they do now. They raised children who saw endless possibility in the world…and those are my parents who saw endless possibility for me. Now I’m paying it forward to my children and to all the women who are part of my Big Life/Badass Babes sisterhood.
