Sweet Designs Featured Writer
Age 15, South Africa
Joined the SDM Team: January 2011
Why I Write for SDM: I write for SDM to gain experience, as I wish to become a writer/journalist one day. I also enjoy writing, making the deadlines, and being able to say, "I'm a writer for Sweet Designs Magazine."
Activities, Sports, Interests: My usual activities are blogging and writing or Google-ing everything and anything I can. I'm interested in shopping, music, and movies/TV shows. And fan fiction! Yeah, geeky, I know.
Favorite Authors: Meg Cabot, Sarra Manning, Melissa De La Cruz, L.J. Smith, and Cecily von Ziegasar.
Favorite School Subjects: I guess Accounting, since I'm good at it, although it does make me sleepy at times, Biology definitely, and English occasionally.
Favorite Movies: The Notebook, She's The Man, Hot Chicks, The Devil Wears Prada, and Confessions of a Shopaholic.
Favorite TV Shows: The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, Lie To Me, Criminal Minds, and America's Next Top Model.
I listen to: Almost everything, except for rap. My fave artists are Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, The Veronicas, Kat Deluna, Placebo, Linkin Park, and Pixie Lott.
Most Important Values: Honesty and loyalty.
I enjoy: Reading, writing, blogging, and watching TV.
Future Plans: Well, I'm in the process of writing another novel (my third). So watch this space. I will also like to create a name for myself as a writer and hopefully study journalism once I've finished school.

What I'm All About: If you haven't noticed already, I'm kind of a couch potato. I love my movies and TV shows. I'm the girl who will cry her heart out simply because a character on TV has died. I'm very passionate about writing and wish to become an author one day.
Favorite Quotes: Everything happens for a reason.

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. - Mohandas Gandhi
