Her hometown is Napanee, Ontario, Canada
born on September 27, 1984 in the small town of Napanee
how did a smalltown girl become a young rock rebel you wonder?
She had been singing ever since she was 2 years old at home.
At 11, she taught herself how to play her dad`s guitar and practised songs she learned at choir for hours.
Fabri, made a video of her singing and sent it to a record company and Avril was called to meet them in New York
Got two contracts from Zizzo Studios in New York totaling 3.3 million dollars when she was 16!
Moved to New York with her brother and tried to find song-writers she could work with. After many months she went to Los Angeles to meet with another songwriter, Clif Magness. In their first writing session they finished one whole song.
She loved working with Clif so both of them teamed up with a production team, The Matrix.
Avril finished her album and that's how she became a world famous rockstar.

Responsible for all desicions
Coopertive team member
Came up with great songs that reflect how she feels ever since she was 10
Would write short stories and make mini books
She was tired of pop and made it look old and out-outdated by coming up with creative rock songs to inspire future stars and have a whole new generation of music kids will like to listen to.
She says" I am a solo artist but when people think of Avril, I want them to think of me and the guys. We work together as a band, it's not only about me.
She loved working with Cilf and the Matrix because she thought that they made a great team
She babysat Medd's kids and to this day they say that she was the best babysitter they ever had. She is very engaging with people and a joy to work with. She had a real positive spirit about everything"
Unwanted was a song that Avril worked hard on, her manager loved it but the American Record Label, Arista hated it. Instead of being disappointed and mad she bounced right back and wrote another song called "Tomorrow"
Instead of being negative and complaining about being lonely and away from home she tried to ignore that so she can get inspiration for her song
When Avril sang complicated one man had asked her" How can life be so complicated? Your'e only 16! Life's like that! You haven't had any of life yet!" But Avril just ignored him and didn't take the criticism to heart
Always been a saver. Instead of buying a convertible she just wanted a used Jeep even after being a millionare!
She says "I have to care of myself and make really important desicions as a teenager and this has aged me."
Make a decision of either dropping out of school and moving to New York to become a singer or staying at home and not dropping out
One of her quotes are" I'm gonna dress what's me, I'm gonna act what's me and I'm gonna sing what's me"
She says," people want me to look all pretty for pictures and photoshoots but that's just not my thing"
Enjoy Life and don't take it too seriously
She jumped off of a really high bridge with her friend
They weren't sure if the water was shallow or contained hidden rocks. They just did it.
She jumped and sreamed and when she hit the water she was like "I'm alive"
She says" all I want is a decent house and a clean bed to sleep in, and I'll be happy
When she was young she would spend hours writing songs, singing and playing her guitar.
She isn't afraid to push her self really hard
She could have stayed home instead of going to New York and becoming a singer but she took a good risk to go to New York and dropping out of school. If she hadn't done so she would never would have been as successful as she is today.
