When I was 16, I was walking home with my sister and best friend, Maria, when we stumbled upon a pile of discarded Cosmo mags. I was a bit of a late bloomer and had never really thought of myself as a burgeoning sexual being. While Cosmo was full of its fair share of fluff, I learned so much from reading those first issues. I also gained my intense love of lifestyle content on those pages and I credit Cosmo for starting me on the path to becoming the journalist I am today.
