Miley Ray Cyrus, 17, (born Destiny Hope Cyrus on November 23, 1992) is a Golden Globe and Critic's Choice Award nominated American singer, actress, and best-selling author. Miley is known for starring as Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana in the television series Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel. Miley was recently listed among artists and entertainers as one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World. In a Time interview in 2008, she encouraged her peers to "start young" when it comes to service. "If you pick up a guitar when you're 8 you're really good at it by the time you're 20. It's the same with giving back. My family has been visiting Kentucky coal-mine towns since I was little. We take clothes, gifts, and school supplies. It's an eye opener for me, seeing families here in America living in Third World conditions. And it makes me want to make a difference. The truth is, it's never too early to get involved. Someday today's kids will be running for President. Now is our prep time. We need to get some practice in before we save the world." Visit Miley Cyrus's Website
