Joined the SDM Team: September 2010

Why I Write for SDM: I enjoy giving people real advice. Nothing sugar coated or watered down, just my perspective based on my life experiences.

Activities, Sports, Interests: In my free time I love going dancing with my friends. I am a movie geek who appreciates humor to horror/romantic to sci-fi.

Favorite Authors: J.K. Rowling, Maya Angelou, and Stephen King.

Favorite School Subjects: It would definitely be English - everybody loves an easy A!

Favorite TV Shows: Bridezillas, Family Guy, Housewives, Survivor, and America's Next Top Model

I listen to: I am not really picky when it comes to music. I can do anything with a good beat (no country). Favorite music artist right now is Drake.

Most Important Values: Passion and commitment.

I enjoy: Cooking, traveling, reading, dancing, singing in the shower/car, working out, makeup, shopping, and everything about being a girl!

Future Plans: Graduating from college within the year is my number one goal. After that, the world is mine for the taking and I just want to be successful.

A Favorite Quote: "I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." - Marilyn Monroe
