Taylor Swift just turned 27! If you know me, you know this is a big a deal. I love T-Swift!

I’ve been a Swiftie through and through for years. I’ve seen her on all of her major headlining tours: The Fearless Tour in 2009, The Speak Now Tour in 2011, The Red Tour in 2013 and The 1989 World Tour in 2015. I never hesitate to stand up for Taylor and defend her against haters, because I truly love her music and her message.

Mostly, I love Taylor, because she encourages her fans to stay true to themselves. She makes me feel like it’s okay to be me and do things my own way. Plus, even if some people don’t get it or get me, she reminds me that others will.

I made this video at Clevver celebrating Taylor’s 27th birthday and 7 of her amazing moments in 2016. Happy Birthday Taylor! Thank you for making all of us Swifties feel like we belong to your squad.
