I just read Teen Ink for the first time and it is a very interesting magazine. It's full of helpful information about college. Many of the stories are very interesting, considering the authors are all about my age. Many of these stories inspire me to want to help others.
The hero articles are my favorite. There are many kinds of heroes - from famous people and athletes to parents and friends. All you have to do to be a hero is be yourself. Everyone has his or her own great qualities. Someone, somewhere and at some time will admire you, as long as you are yourself.
