Stacie had a 'ball' at the shoot! When we caught up with Girls' Survival Guide 2007 cover girl, Stacie, she was running…out the door! And that’s no surprise--Stacie's summer is packed! She volunteers every morning at her local church, and, today, she was on her way to get a haircut. Lucky for us, Stacie was more than happy to chat on her sister's cell phone in the minutes before her trim. (Thanks, Stacie!) Here are all her answers to your questions!

Stacie behind the scenesWere you scared when you were getting your hair and makeup done at the cover photo shoot?

No, I was kind of excited to see what it would all look like.

Did you feel like you connected with the other girls?

I felt like we connected, but it wasn't immediate. Some time passed before we really felt comfortable around each other. We just started talking and, before we knew it, we were laughing together.

How does it feel to be on the cover of a national magazine?

It's really exciting! I mean, it’s not every day that you go to a magazine stand and your face is right there.

How did your friends react to the cover?

Actually, not many of my friends know about it.


I kept it kind of quiet. If I blabbed it to the whole world, it might seem like I’m bragging about it or something.

Did you feel comfortable when you were in front of the camera at the photo shoot?

I felt comfortable, but once I started worrying about how I looked, I'd tense up and my face would start to hurt! The best thing to do in front of the camera is to relax.

What advice do you have for girls who want to be on the cover of a magazine someday, or who want to achieve their dreams?

Smile, be yourself, and have fun!
