Within the past year, we’ve seen a huge shift of young people taking some power and finding their own voice. Teen Vogue has been a front runner in this shift, becoming a huge platform where young adults are able to both speak up and get educated on relevant social issues. So, it comes as no surprise that they are celebrating with their first digital covers, featuring eight innovative young stars. Teen Vogue is calling this crew the Young Hollywood Class of 2018.
