Lena Dunham may just be the quintessential millennial woman. At only 28-years-old, she’s accomplished more than many of us will in a lifetime and she did it by thoroughly and unapologetically marching to the beat of her own drum. The Lena Dunham biography is brief but densely packed. She grew up in New York, the daughter of artists, Caroll Dunham and Laurie Simmons. At 23 her short film, Tiny Furniture won South by Southwest’s award for Best Narrative Feature. When the hugely successful and prolific director, Judd Apatow happened to see it, he saw potential gold and became the executive producer of her breakout HBO series, Girls.
