After school she walked with her friends talking about their homework assigned by their teacher. She was a sophomore in high school; she went to Andrea High School. She isn't very popular in school, and she didn't recommend her as beautiful or cute. She just thinks herself as average, but she was smart. She's not the top of the class actually she was the second.
