Founded in 2016 by Mia Johansson, The Teen Magazine started as a blog with a few writers. Since then, it has grown into an international online magazine with over 150 writers from around the world. I made the website with the initial purpose of this website was to learn Ruby on Rails and Git for one of my computer science internships. I never thought theteenmagazine.com would be anything more than a hobby, but I had fun adding complexity to the site, and my website has since grown into so much more. Through my website, I have been able to communicate with people from all over the world, give aspiring journalists a platform to publish, and, after the fires in my hometown of Santa Rosa, make a difference in my community by fundraising for fire victims.
