Age 20, Philippines

Joined the SDM Team: March 2008

Why I Write for SDM: I have a voice and I want to be heard. I can do this through Sweet Designs Magazine because this isn't just an online magazine, it's a symbol of the youth. I believe that through SDM I can be there for teens, even if I am halfway across the world.

Activities, Sports, Interests: I'm not really into sports, but from time to time I play table tennis. I've been obsessed with Twilight since I read it a year ago. Not just Twilight, but Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward Cullen. I like him so much. I love hanging out with my friends and I love to read.

Favorite Books: My favorite books are the Twilight series, so I love Stephenie Meyer. I love Chick Lit books, so I like Sophie Kinsella and Meg Cabot. I also love Shakespeare, especially Romeo and Juliet.

Favorite School Subjects: History is my favorite subject!

Favorite Movies & TV Shows: I have so many, and I'll just name a few. For my movies, Twilight, of course, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Slumdog Millionare, and August Rush. For my favorite TV Shows, it's Gossip Girl, Chuck, Grey's Anatomy, How I Met Your Mother, The Hills, and a lot more.

I listen to: All kinds of songs! I like pop, hip hop, rock, acoustic, and even country. I like listening to Cobra Starship, Kings of Leon, Muse, Demi Lovato, John Mayer, Katy Perry, and a whole lot more.

Most Important Values: Respecting and not judging everyone around me.

I enjoy: A lot of stuff! I especially like hanging out with my friends and watching movies. Also, I love listening to the latest music and reading great books.
