ur newest teen fashion model and cover girl this month is Martha Urena of Pharr, Texas. Martha is the 14 year old daughter of Dr. Pilar Reyes Urena and is sister to two brothers, Javoer, nine and Jesus, seventeen. In spite of her youth, Martha exhibits the skills and talent of a mature fashion model. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that she is a member of a district champ track team. (Martha competes in the 400 relay, the 300 yard hurdles and the 100 yard hurdles) nor that Martha holds several titles in UIL drama competition while on the AB Honor Roll at school. Liberty Middle School. Martha sets a good example for other teens by spending a lot of time giving back to her community. Her most passionate community work involves helping children with special needs since she has a family member who has down’s syndrome.

Now, you can’t tell by the pictures but, Martha loves to bake and experiment while making special culinary creations from scratch. However, Martha’s two favorite hobbies are fashion modeling and shopping for clothes. How convenient! Martha made wardrobe selections from WAREHOUSE 503 with the assistance of stylist Stephanie Hernandez. Her hair and makeup were done by Dina Baez. The photoshoot was on location at the Club at Cimarron and at Florian Coffee Shop in Sharyland. Valley’s No. 1 On-Line Magazine

About RegenPlasma™ The internal essence of the blood inside you contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors that are designed to restore and strengthen your body. RegenPlasma™, a leading edge patented technology, harnesses a high concentration of your own biological nutrient-rich cells and unleashes them to naturally promote skin health by stimulating a rebuilding of the underlying structural integrity of your skin, With a simple, quick and advantageous RegenLab™ process, your own b blood is safely prepared on the physician's premises and is delivered to your skin within the same treatment session.

How does RegenPlasma™ work? RegenPlasma™ is a regenerative medicine and works best aesthetically when it is introduced into the skin. Your own concentration of cells will then work with your body to naturally promote a "structure and signals" process for new tissue and collagen growth.

When will I see results? After the treatment patients often notice fine lines and wrinkles have softened and deeper wrinkled areas, such as nasilabial-folds, may look more plump and smoother. However, according to studies, the main goal of a RegenPlasma™'" treatment is to stimulate flberblast and develop long-term collagen formations in the dermis. Any plumping in the treated areas with RegenPlasma™ may slowly be absorbed into the dermis creating a platform for stronger skin and a more healthy appearance. Overall, results are gradual and will vary from person to person based on health, age and genetic make-up. Mast patients enjoy quantifiable improvements in skin complexion, texture and tone usually within three weeks. Subtle improvements can progressively continue for up to a year.

What areas can be treated with RegenPlasma™? RegenPlasma™ is derived from your own biological makeup and does not contain synthetic products, therefore, virtually any area of the body can be treated such as: face, neck, chest, hands, scars, etc.

How many treatments will I need? The basic strategy for a RegenPlasma™ program can range from one to three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Yet, once you discuss the primary priorities of your skin needs with your physician, the number of treatments could vary.

Are there any side effects? Because all constitutes retrieved in RegenPlasma™ are exclusively from you (autologous in origin), there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. Nevertheless, before the treatment you need to disclose all the medications you are taking (including herbs) with your doctor.

How will I take care of my skin after the treatment? In order to enjoy a maximum response to your RegenPlasma™ treatment you should eat right, drink lots of water and incorporate the recommended facial care by your physician.

Lauren Calaway Capturing the Moment To capture and hold a reader’s eye is the upmost objective of any successful fashion ad, and it is often the model who holds the cards that enable a campaign to achieve it. One Central Texas fashion model, Lauren Calaway, has that special charisma and impact power that is so sought after. Lauren was raised in Wimberley, Texas, located 28 miles southwest of Austin. (a small town where every still knows each other’s entire family! “It wasn't long into my college career that I decided to pursue modeling full time. I took a leap, and became the rebel of the family and moved out of state. Over the years, I have lived in Charleston, Saratoga Springs, New York, and now Los Angeles, and would love to work abroad.” says Lauren, adding, “Modeling has taken me into other art forms such as acting, music, and photo retouching.” To learn more about Lauren visit her facebook page and website at: www.laurencalaway. com

hen I first started in this industry, I used to love to be behind the camera. I would do makeup/hair and wardrobe styling. Then I started to wonder what it’s like on the other side of the camera. So, I began contacting local photographers to help me build a portfolio and learn how to model. Most people would tell me the same thing, "You can't be a modelyou are too short." However, I had already fallen in love with modeling and I was determined.

Pioneer Lauren Calaway

E​ ventually, I made my way to Los Angeles. Over and over again I was rejected by agencies. They say,"If you were 5'8' you would be a super model." Well, that was not going to happen. Eventually, I joined an agency and started to book bigger jobs. But even then, someone would tell me that I was too shortfor modeling. Well, since then, I have been agency represented and have worked major campaigns. Just Saying.. I strongly believe that if you have drive and determination, you can do anything. You have to believe in yourself before someone else will believe in you, that’s for sure!

B

ack in February of this year, a young and talented musician/songwriter from Donna, Texas launched his music career with the new original release of “Any Flow”, a youth inspiring hip-hop tune that got aired on local and regional radio stations (See-Valley Rap Hits New Swing with Jeremiah Jay’s Any Flow-Contempo Magazine, Feb. 2012). Since then, Any Flow and Jeremiah have attracted some heavy attention in Texas and L.A., California.

Jeremiah Jay appearing with Contempo cover girl model, Martha Urena at the Eyes on Me music video shoot in Weslaco, Texas.

On August 7th, Jeremiah produced his second music video titled, “Eyes on Me” at the Old Public Works building on Bridge Ave. in Weslaco. The song is an “upbeat rap song on the aspect of reading the crowd.” Contempo chats with Jeremiah after the filming of the music video.. What inspires you to write and perform your music? Music has always been a passion of mine , & getting on stage and performing or in front of a microphone & recording is just an amazing thing/ feeling for me. How did your summer go since we last spoke with you? My summer has been amazing packed with performances all over Texas , Houston , Dallas , etc.. . How many views on youtube did you receive on Any Flow? The views on Any Flow are about to reach 28,000 so I’m very proud of that.
