AGirlsWorld includes more than 90 volunteer girl editors from around the world who offer contemporary and family-friendly advice for girls. Visit their popular interactive Web site run by A Girl's World Productions, Inc.

Fourteen-year-old Angela Marie Ortiz is in 9th grade in Oceanside, California. Here is what she has to say about herself:

I would describe myself as nice, caring and honest. For fun, I go to movies, hang out with friends, go to the mall, shop and play soccer. Whenever I feel blue, I sit on my bed and while I read books, I listen to music.

The most exciting thing I've ever done was meet LeAnn Rimes in 1997.

I first became a member of the A Girl's World (AGW) girlcrew in May of 1996. I am one of the original and first members of AGW. Many things have changed since the first year of AGW. When we had just started out, we only had about 8 pages and not very many editors. Now we have more than 680 pages and 90 editors. We also have much more activities.

Being a member of the AGW girl crew is fun, exciting and a really great experience. I keep coming back to AGW because I like being with all of my friends. Being a member of the AGW girl crew means a lot to me because it makes me feel important, happy and I enjoy being there.

My role model is my mom because of all the nice things she does for me.

I like the way my book is set up and how the chapters go. I also love the activities the people can do while they read the book. The things that I would like to change on my book are the colors and the title. I don't think that writing this book has changed me at all. The biggest challenge writing this book was finding the right stories to put into thebook.

My hopes and dreams are to continue to be a soccer player, go to college, and eventually get married and have kids.

I like being a girl today because we can vote and we can do anything we want to do. The only advice I can give to girls who want to be writers is to keep up the hard work and never give up their dream.
