Why I Write for SDM: I write for SDM because it's a great creative outlet. I love to write, and I love that I can help other girls doing so! :)
Activities, Sports, Interests: Singing, acting, dancing, writing, photography, fashion.
Favorite Authors: Stephenie Meyer, Meg Cabot, and Laurie Halse-Anderson.
Favorite School Subject: Art, Music, English (well, high school wise).
Favorite Movies: 13 Going on 30, Miss Congeniality, Finding Nemo, The Hangover, The Producers, Music & Lyrics, Sex & the City, Twilight, and New Moon (to name a few).
Favorite TV Shows: ANTM, Grey's Anatomy, The Vampire Diaries, The Nanny, What Not to Wear, and The Big Bang Theory.
I listen to: Pretty much any kind of music, except for rap & metal. My favorites are mainstream (like stuff you hear on the radio) and indie (like Ingrid Michaleson, Lenka, Jason Mraz, and Colbie Calliat).
Most Important Values: 1. I am strongly against underage drinking, any use of drugs, and sex before marriage. 2. I'm very much into love & peace. I feel like you should be able to be loving toward your friends and family without it being awkward.
I enjoy: My hobbies, shopping, being with friends & family, and going to the beach!
Future Plans: My plan for the future is to go through college, while working in the theatre business as much as possible. After that, I'd like to jumpstart a career as an actress, or if that doesn't work out, fashion, and eventually have a family!

What I'm All About: I'm all about sunshine and rainbows and the deal. That's just my personality. I'm very bubbly and happy! ... well, 99% of the time. We all have our moments, but I'm all about love, and I love all of my friends and family very much, and they truly mean everything to me! :)
Favorite Quotes: "Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." - Unknown
"Happiness is the secret to all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without happiness." - Christian Dior
"Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder." - Henry David Thoreau
"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you will never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone." - Audrey Hepburn
