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.

Charitable And Stylish Men We Love: Prince Harry

On April 29, 2011, a great sigh flitted through all of woman kind as William the Duke of Cambridge walked down the aisle with his true love, the new Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and even though the world was watching with wistful eyes, our hearts began to beat for another prince, the rebel, the soldier, Prince Harry of Wales The second son of the icon Diana, Princess of Wales and Charles, Prince of Wales, Harry has always delighted us with his rebellious charm, his dedication to serving his country, how cute he looks playing polo and, royal event or not, how he always seems to be himself. If those weren’t reasons enough to love His Highness, it seems that the Prince of Wales isn’t done giving us reasons to swoon. Prince Harry is involved with almost 20 different charities that benefit people and places worldwide, giving the term ‘royal treatment’ a whole new meaning.

During his recent trip to the US, Prince Harry flexed his giving arm by competing in a friendly polo match in Greenwich, Conn., an event which garnered $1 million for Sentebale, a charity begun by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, the African country that Sentebale benefits. The royal-made charity aims to bring aid, health care and education to the orphaned and most vulnerable children in Lesotho, victims of the AIDS and HIV epidemic in the country.

His Highness also appeared in Washington D.C. on behalf of Halo Trust, a non-profit organization that sponsors the de-mining of old war zones and was one of Princess Diana’s favorite charities. Harry also visited the storm-torn coast of the Jersey shore as well as made an appearance at the opening ceremony of the Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an annual event during which men and women injured in combat compete in friendly Paralympic games.

Of course, one week in the US barely scratched the surface of the prince’s philanthropy. Harry and his brother William began The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry in 2009, a large charity which supports a large expanse of projects including helping to give opportunities to underprivileged youth, environmental conservation and support for the Armed Forces and their families. The Prince of Wales also supports Tusk Trust, a trust supporting wildlife conservation and education as well as teaching sustainable development and poverty alleviation, of which Prince William is the Royal Patron.

Sticking to his military ties, Harry also is an avid supporter of multiple charities dedicated to serving military men and women and their families such as Help For Heroes, a large non-profit organization which offers immediate financial assistance, educational, physical and psychological help and employment opportunities to injured service men and women and their families. Harry is also an avid supporter of The Warrior Programme, a charity dedicated to bringing support to homeless veterans and giving them opportunities to help them to get back on their feet and making them pillars in their communities.

The Prince of Wales also has a soft spot for conservation and environmental protection. He gives his support to charities such as the Prince’s Rainforest Project, whose aim it is to slow deforestation by offering other choices to the native countries as well as raising awareness about climate change and habitat destruction.
