Best friends Emily Cohn and Emma Orlow believe that the way you inhabit your room says a lot about who you are. Recognizing that there is no such thing as a typical bedroom (just as there’s no such thing as a normal teen), this week they launched The Do Not Enter Diaries, a web series that offers an intimate peek into the private spaces of teens from across the globe.
A new installment will go up on their site every Wednesday at 4 PM, but today Rookie has an exclusive look at this week’s episode. Tatiyana J. is a 16-year-old from Harlem, New York who, collects Ty Beanie Bears, designs giant mustache pillows, and uses her windowsill as a nursery for the plants she grows for the urban garden down the street. Her room is totally rad, and she is, too.
