The world first met shailene woodley seven years ago yesterday

Long before she started kicking butt in the “Divergent” series and tugging at our heartstrings in “The Fault in Our Stars,” Shailene Woodley was *just* a quiet teenager with shiny hair starring on one of the most groundbreaking ABC Family shows ever. “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” was basically a sex-ed class wrapped in a soapy drama, but that doesn’t mean that Shai wasn’t literally the best thing to happen to broadcast television since sliced bread.

In honor of “Secret Life’s” seven year anniversary today (July 1), we rounded up all the times that Shai absolutely killed it, even before becoming one of the biggest stars in the world.

 

1. She knew how to act serious.

Probably a requirement on a show about teen pregnancy, but still.

 

2. And how to get down to earth.

And no, we could never imitate it, no matter how hard we tried.

 

6. She could rock an up-do.

9. She could even dress for cold weather.

 

10. She liked to rock statement headbands.

 

11. In fact, she had the essence of the 2000’s pretty much down: headbands, sunglasses and plaid.

14. And sometimes, she wore scarves while seriously smizing.

Rock on, Shai.
