For those of you who prefer to read the internet (or a book, or watch TV, or eat or simply exist) on your own, actress, author, comedian and vlogger Grace Helbig , who has over 2.9 million subscribers to her YouTube channel, has a t-shirt you’ll definitely relate to. The “currently introverting” t-shirt she designed is available for a limited time from Represent. Act fast, though; the American Apparel 3/4 shirt, which costs $24.69, is only available until June 23 (it ships July 9), and comes in sizes XS to 2XL.
Grace, was born and grew up in New Jersey, has made major strides toward making being an introvert cool, and I applaud her for that! It also explains why she chose YouTube as her medium, since recording videos doesn’t require her to leave her house. In an interview with fashion website The Outfit, Grace said, “I began my career doing improv. It was fun, but also filled with anxiety; I love making people laugh, but I’m a big introvert. YouTube was the perfect playground to create comedy—without having to be around people.”
This shirt speaks to me personally, because even though I was voted “Most Talkative” in high school, I’ve changed a lot since then and now actually have to give myself a pep talk before socializing, because I spend so much time alone. So if you’re like Grace (and me), check out her shirt, and be proud to be an introvert.
