Mereia Alston-Torres

Sixteen-year-old Mereia enjoys cooking, reading mystery novels and playing with her two cats, Simba and Coco. She is fascinated by people’s minds and hopes to one day pursue a career as a psychologist. Mereia loves to write and is most interested in writing about birth control and safer sex for Sex, Etc. “It’s important to educate teens about their options and especially about having safer sex,” explains Mereia. She hopes that the work she does with Sex, Etc. will make a positive impact on other teens’ lives by helping them make informed decisions.
