I don't read Cosmo, but I think you pretty much nailed the genre and style of the personal profile article. There's a nice blend of information and congenial conversation to make the reader feel like she or he knows the subject. However, you never did ask about her unusual name, which is mentioned in the title of the article. The User's Guide and the Reflection both add to your understanding of the genre. You realize that what your reader wants to know really matters.

Very polished product.
