On the Cover - Meet Mayra
By Mayra B., age 16, California

I'm Mayra B. I live in Cali and I'm going to be a senior in the Fall. I love to write. To me it is another form of expression. It's the door to my soul and the cure to all my problems. After high school, I plan to attend a university ... not quite sure which one yet. In a couple years, I want to publish my own magazine focusing on real women with real life stories. I believe that women are just as equal as men, and can go far beyond their perceived potential. Besides writing, I love tennis, and I have been playing the sport for about three years now.
I'm a typical girl ... eggghh [sighs] ... not really. Brands don't distinguish who I am - it's the things that I say that make me simply ME. I look up to my mother, not the celebrities on magazine covers. She is my inspiration, and the every inch of determination I hold under my skin.
I love to make my friends, family, and boyfriend laugh. It's something that I enjoy doing. Kisses to all of them! Going out is a must in my life, especially shopping. Once in a while I like to go to the beach and collect sea shells. Astronomy fascinates me, and if I save enough money I want to buy a telescope!
