Sweet Designs Featured Writer
Age 19, Texas
Joined the SDM Team: January 2008
Why I Write for SDM: 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.
Activities, Sports, Interests: I love the band, basketball, volleyball, the water, modeling, writing, photography, and being with friends.
Favorite School Subjects: Band, all math and science, athletics, and art.
Favorite Movies & TV Shows: Tangled (best movie ever), Despicable Me, South Pacific, Spaceballs, Tremors, Slumdog Millionaire, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, and America's Next Top Model.
I listen to: Every kind of music. I like the music from Disney movies and musicals. I like pop and oldies mostly, but also rap, country, and everything but screamo.
Most Important Values: Kindness, enthusiasm, spunk, uniqueness, and being spontaneous.
I enjoy: Playing my marimba!!, being competitive, and doing anything creative. :)
