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.

If you are perusing the Miss A website, it’s pretty safe to assume that you are generous and that you care a great deal about helping those in need in the most stylish way. That being said, it is also safe to assume that you probably also love glamor and exciting events, so how could you not want to join some of the most iconic stars as they attempt to launch a global effort for good? Larger than life names like Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Richard Branson and Linkin Park are lending their powerful hands to The Urgency Network, a powerful new effort that is trying to bring together celebrities and their fans, non-profits and brands in an online platform to launch a global effort for the betterment of the entire world.

But how does it work and how would you be connected to these and more iconic stars?

Simply put, the online platform through which the charity effort runs offers people a chance to win a ‘grand prize’ such as a trip to Japan to see Linkin Park in concert by entering all participants into the drawing when they donate to a cause, view and share awareness videos, volunteering,
