On the Cover

By Karina, age 17, Texas

Truthfully, I first saw Sweet Designs Magazine when I was surfing the web when I was 15. It said to apply and you could be a model for SDM! I really wanted to be a model then, and so eagerly I sent in my application and was officially a model. :P I told all my friends, and then forgot about it. Well, now I love to write, especially when it isn't for a grade, so I decided to become a writer for SDM.

Kindness, enthusiasm, spunk, uniqueness, and being spontaneous are my favorite qualities

All books by Mary Higgins Clark and Laurie Halse Anderson are awesome!

Really enjoys sports, band, writing and being with friends

I love random old stuff, like phones, typewriters and sewing machines

No cockroaches or beetles for me, Yuck!

America's Next Top Model, Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives are my favorite TV shows

Laughter is definitely the best medicine

Any comedy movie will catch my attention

Understand that everything happens for a reason

Rubber ducks are the bomb :P

Every form of music is what I listen to

Noticing the small details is my forte

"20 years from now, you will be more disappointed in the things you didn't do than by the things you did do. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Go out, find your dream, and live it.
