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: Jennifer Aniston

It’s that time of year again, ladies. The seasons are changing and so are the wardrobes; we’re changing out sweaters for tank tops and long pants for shorts and skirts. What could be better? Well–maybe those shorts would look better without our pale, dull, winter skin, but have no fear! America’s favorite girl next door, JENNIFER ANISTON, has begun a new beauty campaign with Aveeno, the company devoted to natural remedies to help bring our dull winter skin back to life and keep it looking radiant all year long.

Of course, this week’s Beauty, in fashion with the brand she now represents, shows off her famously natural beauty, but as it turns out, Ms. Aniston is just as naturally gorgeous inside as she is outwardly. The actress supports almost 20 different charities, including big names like Feeding America, Habitat For Humanity and Stand Up To Cancer, but perhaps some of her most dedicated work goes towards St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She began representing them in 2008 with their Thanks and Giving Campaign and since then has supported the research hospital ever since. When she appears on behalf of the hospital Ms. Aniston is all smiles and hugs with the children she advocates for, but it isn’t just the children in St. Jude hospitals that she is concerned about.

The new Aveeno spokeswoman is a proud supporter Friends of El Faro, an organization whose mission is to improve the lives of the children living at Casa Hogar Sion Orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico. The children who inhabit the orphanage have been abandoned or else abused and the proceeds from the organization go toward their education and care. For her birthday in 2010, Ms. Aniston created a doll for the orphanage, which was made by local artisans and all of the proceeds go toward Friends of El Faro. The actress is also a supporter of the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation; based out of Chicago, the foundation provides support for those affected by pediatric cancer and searches for ways to prevent it.

Ms. Aniston is also an avid supporter of relief efforts in Haiti. In 2010, the actress donated $500,000 towards disaster relief through various charities like Doctors Without Borders, a program in which doctors and nurses go to disaster areas to treat the people affected regardless of religion or politics, Partners In Health, an organization dedicated to bringing the benefits of medical research and care to those who could otherwise not afford it, and AmeriCares, an organization whose mission it is to deliver care and medicine to people in need. The Aveeno spokeswoman also supports Omnipeace, the humanitarian fashion brand that believes in solving poverty through education and peaceful solutions, but the list goes on from there! With almost 20 charities on her roster, this is one Beauty who positively glows with radiance and it isn’t all because of the Aveeno. So, now that you’ve braved the mall for your new skirt, you can be sure that the lotion you use to bring your winter skin back to life if represented by a woman who goes above and beyond to make the world a more beautiful place. Come back next week to find out who else is showing off her beauty inside and out! Got a Beauty in mind that hasn’t been represented yet? Want to see her here?
