"Even though I left the magazine 5 years ago, I always thought of it as "my baby" since I created the original concept on my bedroom floor with markers, a glue stick and lots of tubes of lipstick around me (to create the "Girl" in the CosmoGIRL! logo). Until Friday, it felt like my baby was still out there being taken care of by another wonderful family. It felt weird but the way things needed to be. Now that baby is gone....and replaced in my life by this new real life CosmoGIRL! - Angelika. ...My mom was right. If you work hard now, you CAN have everything later. I worked my TAIL off for about 15 years and today I have just the life I always dreamed of and my new baby girl completes that picture. I didn't get here by accident - I designed this life and set the foundation with years of hard work. Yet I'm still pretty young - young enough to ENJOY the fruits of my labor."
