Previously: Maja on the Cover

Rewind to August 2003's cover story.

Candy Teen Model 2003 finalist Maja (pronounced Ma-ja) Ross Andres couldn't be any happier when we asked her to be our poster girl for August. Her sweet, bedimpled smile, easygoing disposition (we thought she was shy until she started cracking jokes minutes into the shoot), carefree attitude, and truly big heart won our hearts at Candy. Read on and discover this cover girl's dreams, idiosyncracies, and pretty mature musings for a soon-to-be 15-year-old!

I'm Gonna Be A Supermodel

Maja has always believed she'd get into the modeling scene someday. Ever since she can remember, she'd gamely pose for her mom and join beauty contests when she was younger. Recently, Maja joined a modeling workshop where she had the chance to sashay down the ramp a la Kate Moss. The confident 14-year-old shares, "I hardly get stage fright before a show because I don't allow fear to prevent me from fulfilling my dream!" When she saw the announcement for this year's Candy Teen Model Search, Maja felt a strong urge to submit her entry. She knew joining it would be the first step toward fulfilling her dream. When she learned she made it as one of the eight finalists, Maja was stunned. "When I got a call from the Candy team, I got so nervous, I handed the phone to my mom. Afterwards, as soon as Mommy put down the phone, we just started screaming and jumping up and down! I was so excited at the news that I grabbed my lola and danced around with her too."
