Sweet Designs Featured Writer

Age 26, South Africa

Joined the SDM Team: October 2009

Why I Write for SDM: Writing is the most natural thing to me. It is the way I express my thoughts, feelings, and my true self. SDM is a great platform for young writers to connect with each other and with girls all over the world. SDM is an inspiration, and I feel lucky to be part of it.

Activities, Sports, Interests: My number one activity and interest is writing. I have written and self-published several eBooks. I create the covers for my eBooks, so I dabble in graphic art. I have also designed and created my own blog, where I post regularly. I love reading and watching movies. I'm not really sporty, I was more into drama when I was at school. I enjoy the theatre and watching shows. I also often go to the beach in Durban where I live.

Favorite Authors: I love chick lit books and classic love stories. My favorite authors are Jane Green and Sophie Kinsella, as well as Jane Austen.

Favorite TV Shows: I'm a reality show junkie! I'm addicted to The Bachelor, Jerseylicious, Teen Mom, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Project Runway, and So You Think You Can Dance. I also love Gossip Girl. My favorite TV show of all time is Sex and the City. I own the box set of the entire series and have watched it several times!

Favorite Movies: I love chick flicks and musicals. I have so many favorites, but a few are: Love Actually, Grease, Dirty Dancing, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Godfather.

I listen to: An eclectic mix including Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Muse, Taylor Swift, Jason Mraz, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias, Daughtry, and Michael Jackson.

Most Important Values: Love, loyalty, trust, kindness, and honesty.

I enjoy: Spending time with my family, especially my niece and nephew. A few other things I enjoy are: Summer, the beach, laughing, reading, writing, movies, cuddling, chocolate, puppies, shopping, and traveling.

Future Plans: I hope to follow on my four year Psychology Honours degree with a Masters degree. I will also continue writing novels, as well as books and articles on relationships. I hope to travel more, get married and have children, and just be happy and loved.

Favorite Quotes: "Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart." - Khalil Gibran.

"Pure love has no conditions or boundaries. Love does not restrain itself or hold back. Love gives all the time and doesn't ask for anything in return. Love is a continuous flow without any limits. And all of this love is inside you." - The Secret

My favorite quote is one that I think is very true: "But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous." - Sex and the City
