16: Persona | Hello, my name is Melania and am 14 years old. My family and I live on our land just outside of the city. Everyday I walk to work with my friend Alessa. We both work inside our dear friend Juliet's home as her maids. My daily work activity consists of waking Juliet when I arrive, dressing her in her fancy gowns and clean her room. Alessa also helps me to dress her and clean the room but most of our chores are done separately. I am not very wealthy but I do not belong to the poorest family. My family is working class and always will be, but we don't really mind. My look is very classic. I am five foot five inches in height and I weigh one hundred and fifteen pounds. My hair is light brown, long and straight and I have green eyes.
17: I am very calm and passive where as Juliet and Alessa is the total opposite. They are very talkative and loud, which is why we are such great friends. If I were to describe myself in three words they would have to be nice, quiet and pretty. My clothing is never elaborate or fancy, normally just a cleaning dress. After a long days work I return home to my cottage with dinner waiting. It is never anything grand, just average meal that consists of a protein and a vegetable from our farm. I barely have any education, I just know how to read and write. This is because I have been working for most of my life. I don't have many plans for my future. Maybe to get married and have children. But for now I am just going to stick to my friendship with Juliet and Alessa!
