Miss A Columnist

Hayley Orzech is the News & Opinion Editor for Miss A. She found her passion in writing. She grew up in Detroit, MI and though it has been through the mill, she still has faith in it. She just graduated from Northern Michigan University and believes that you have not seen snow until you’ve spent a winter in Marquette on the shores of Lake Superior. She is in love with traveling and her hope now is to see as many places as she can while pursuing her dreams. She grew up in a large Polish family, full of firefighters. If she has learned anything other than how to not set her house on fire, it is that you can never take your blessings for granted because they might be up in flames before you can blink.

She adores traveling and meeting new people from all walks of life. She reads and writes everyday in between navigating her early 20’s. She's made it her mission to spread the wealth to those who are less fortunate. We are all in this together, after all.
She has had the privilege of adventures like snowboarding down the Rocky Mountains, jumping off of a cliff into clear, beautiful Lake Superior, hearing music on the Detroit River, running down a sand dune into the Au Sable River, looking up at the Statue of Liberty, climbing up a waterfall in Jamaica, letting her fingertips graze over a shark in Key West, hiking in California, gazing at Mount Rushmore, holding onto a giant Redwood tree and so many others that she can hardly believe her luck. All she truly want out of life is to have more adventures while helping others and doing the thing she love to do most: write.

Beauty Inside And Out: Halle Berry

To go out in the glaring light of day or to walk under the fluorescent bulbs of the office without a professional make-up crew behind us is a reality that most women live every single day. The survivors of the ugly light war might have superstar and super mom, Halle Berry to thank for their victory. As the beautiful face of Revlon’s Photoready Make-Up, she is there to inspire all of us to be brave in the face of the ugly light war and go out with our heads held high.

Aside from inspiring the rest of us to brave the light, the Revlon spokeswoman spends her time supporting almost 20 different charities. Out of the many non-profit organizations she supports, one of them is in conjunction with Revlon! The Revlon Walk/Run For Women is a foundation dedicated to funding research to help cure cancer. The organization has raised over 68 million so far to put towards the research of those trying to cure all forms of cancer and is holding two more fundraisers this May in both New York and Los Angeles.

When she isn’t mixing her work with her good deeds, however, Mrs. Berry also supports the Afghanistan Relief Organization, a non-political volunteer funded effort to help needy Afghanistan to become self sufficient by means of proper education, food and clothing from over 800 volunteers of all backgrounds. She also supports Love Our Children USA, a large non-profit organization dedicated to keeping children safe and preventing all abuse and exploitation against our nation’s youth. Mrs. Berry, however, was not satisfied with simply keeping violence away from children alone; the actress also is an advocate for  the Jenesse Center, a domestic violence intervention program which was stated by five African American women who were once victims themselves. The program reaches out to other women in similar circumstances and helps them to change their lives. One would think that that would be enough, but the Revlon spokeswoman also supports charities like the Make A Wish Foundation, Stand Up To Cancer and Shane’s Inspiration, an organization dedicated to creating more accessible playgrounds for children with disabilities.
