Hello! My name is Maria and I am in eighth grade at Los Angeles Christian School.
I remember going to school when I was growing up. I always loved my teachers and thought they were so nice, and beautiful, and perfect. It always threw me for a loop, however, when I would see them in public (outside of school hours)—the grocery store, the park, or some sort of event.

Daryll lived for many years in a self-built shack between the 105 and Imperial Highway.
"Amy" was abandoned by her mother when she was very young. Her dad was never around, and when her mom left, Amy would float between her aunt’s house and her grandparent’s house (which are luckily right across the street from each other).
