Maggie Messina

Teen beauty blogger, avid reader, lip gloss obsessed


Maggie is a Senior at Needham High School and has a huge passion for reading and writing. She can’t get her nose out of a great book, or writing an essay she feels enthusiastic about. While not hidden behind a book or a computer screen, Maggie enjoys tutoring young students in any subject they need help in through her tutoring company Academic Assistance. She loves watching someone finally understand a math problem or learn how to write a strong topic sentence. As much as she enjoys helping other people learn, she loves to learn and grow herself.

Due to her academic excellences, she recently got accepted into the National Society of High School Scholars and National Honors Society at her high school. Maggie also loves to be spinning or playing on the lacrosse field, and in her down time, she is watching multiple shows on Netflix like Grey’s Anatomy. When she is not traveling through the journeys of the characters in her books and TV shows, she loves to travel the real world. She has been to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the beaches of Spain, the countryside of Italy, and the Buckingham Palace of Great Britain.

But what really makes Maggie the happiest is having a new shade of lip gloss on or buying a new mascara. Writing the beauty blog has been so much fun for her. She gets to learn about and try on all different kinds of products, but she also gets to reach out to people of her age group about what makeup and hair products are best for them. The blog makes Maggie feel like she is making some difference in the beauty world while also improving her writing skills.
