Profile of Alyssa

Alyssa, a student at Norton High School, proved to be a very interesting character after I conducted an informal interview. “Saturday”, stated Alyssa when I asked her what her favorite day of the week was, because “it’s a free day to do whatever you want without having to worry about school the next day”. Saturday is probably the day where Alyssa would be found snuggling up and eating a nice bowl of her favorite ice cream. “Raspberry”, she said, was her favorite “because it’s fruity and I like fruit”. Surely the fruity and creamy experience of raspberry ice cream would make anyone's Saturday a little more magical. Sadly, the element of paranormal specimen has never occurred for Alyssa on these comfortable Saturdays with her raspberry ice cream. After saying that she never has endured a paranormal experience with a ghost, Alyssa displayed her desire for one: “I would really like to see a ghost!”.
After probing at Alyssa’s brain for a while, it became aware to me that Alyssa’s happy place is one like I have never heard before: “My happy place is underwater”. She desires to be in the water, “looking around at all there is to see”. “I like it”, she continued, “because it’s quiet and there’s nothing to distract you”. Hearing this intrigued me and made me understand Alyssa more, as a person.


  1. Its cool how her happy place is underwater I never thought of that!

  2. I think it was creative that you thought of your happy place being underwater! you described it perfectly! Being underwater is a weird but cool feeling!
