About the Author
Elena Favilli is the co-founder and CEO of Rebel Girls, the cultural media engine working to empower girls and women all over the world. She has worked for Colors Magazine, McSweeney's, RAI, Il Post, and La Repubblica, and managed digital newsrooms on both sides of the Atlantic. She holds a masters degree in semiotics from the University of Bologna and she studied digital journalism at UC Berkeley. Growing up in a small village in Tuscany, Elena was the only kid in town and drew inspiration from the strong women in her family. Fueled by her interest in stories, she continued on as a journalist in Milan, where she co-created Timbuktu Magazine, the first ever iPad magazine for children. After Timbuktu Magazine was picked up by 500 Startups in 2012, Elena chased its success to build a company in California. In 2015, testing out a new idea to provide even greater access to female role models, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls was born. Elena and her co-founder's Kickstarter campaign was an instant triumph, and the book went on to become the most crowdfunded book initiative in history. Elena continues to spearhead Rebel Girls, as it dives into new mission-driven initiatives and projects. She lives in Los Angeles with her dog Lafayette, a Bracco Italiano.
