Jobs is well aware how charmed her life has been, notwithstanding the untimely loss of her father to cancer when she was 13. She considers her mom, business executive and philanthropist Laurene Powell Jobs, a guiding light. “As my life unfolds a bit, I’m going to find my avenue to impact the most people in the best way possible,” she says. “I want to take my time and get it right and find something I love, just as I see my mom finding ways in which to reach people.”
With Fashion Week nearly upon us again, Jobs hopes to be walking many major catwalks. At home, meanwhile, she keeps things casual. She has started a collection of vintage Apple T-shirts, one of which holds tremendous personal value: It appears to be a one-of-a-kind prototype from the Computer 1 era, likely made by her dad when Apple was still based out of his garage. On the front, the T-shirt alludes to a certain biblical icon: “Eve had the right idea,” it reads. On the back, the text continues: “She picked an Apple.”
“It means so much to me,” Jobs says. “I smile every time I wear it.”
