-- Known for her recurring role as Sam on the popular CW show “One Tree Hill,” and appearances on “Entourage”
and “Zoey 101,” Ashley Rickards, 17, can definitely categorize herself as a well-rounded actress. And as she begins filming her new movie, “Dirty Girl,” she weighs in with Relate magazine, a teen digital publication, on living life as a teenage celebrity.
Rickards shares how she handles everything that comes along with being a teen in the spotlight and offers words of advice to fellow teens regarding peer pressure:
“I think you are a reflection of what you surround yourself with—if the people and things in your life aren’t positive then change that by volunteering, reading good books, saying “No” when you want to,” Rickards says.
Rickards is featured as the Relate cover girl for the 2009 fall issue. To read the entire two-page article, log on to http://www.relatemag.com
