Why I Write for SDM: I write for SDM because I love to share my stories and experiences in life with other girls. It's also a good way to bring me up on a bad day. :)

Activities, Sports, Interests: I enjoy graphic design, reading, writing, watching movies, listening to music, and web design. :)

Favorite Authors: I'm gonna have to say my favourite authors are John Grogan and Melissa de la Cruz.

Favorite School Subject: My favourite school subject is English.

Favorite Movies & TV Shows: My all time favourite movies are Marley and Me, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, and The Breakfast Club. My favourite shows are The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and Friday Night Lights.

I listen to: The Beatles (they're my obsession), Taylor Swift, and Pink Floyd.

Most Important Values: Respect, family, and originality.

I enjoy: The Beatles, sunsets, sunrises, starry nights, snow, music, movies, flowers, dogs, Coca-Cola, friends, family, my pet fish, Sims 2 and 3.

Future Plans: In the future I plan to finish high school with all my credits, then go off to college to do a vet technician course, then maybe master that career and go to university and become a veterinarian.
