{Creative, Thoughtful , Caring, Self critical}
Athena cares deeply about others as she likes to make sure everyone is happy and safe, she uses humour to bring a smile in the darkest times even though it may not seem relevant laughter is the best medicine. She was taught at a young age to be kind to everyone and she is, even if someone is horrid and detestable. Kindness is the best thing you can do. Athena likes to use her creativity to bring a certain flair to herself, drawing Thankyou cards and making present for people is something she enjoys and she is sure that people enjoy too.

However Athena does feel that she doesn't do well in helping people, so she will hide herself away from situations that she feels she had messed up. She doesn't want anyone to get hurt because of her actions. She critiques herself and her work most times, starting over a few times before being happy with herself.

Playing violin
Walks barefoot everywhere except of course outside of the apartment complex because that is just silly.
Staring intently at everything mainly to pick out the fine details that people take for granted.
Always carries a pen and paper with her no matter where she is.
  • Watching the world roll by, preferably from her bedroom window or from the roof.
  • Cheesecake, seriously if you can make cheesecake Athena will be your best friend, lover, mother whatever.
  • Drawing, Athena's mind is constantly flowing with ideas so she sketches then out.
  • Music Athena can lose herself in music, any kind can get her thinking
  • Cuddiling, it's not being the person who cuddles the other person but rather being cuddled. Just being held no matter how she is a hug will always soothe her.
  • Cars, motorbikes anything automobile related, even bikes Athena will NOT go near them.
  • Coffee, the smell more than anything, Athena lived above a coffee shop for a year and the smell made her I'll.
  • judgmental people, really if you don't have anything nice to say,say nothing at all.
  • Being alone. For certain reasons Athena can't stand to be alone for more than a few hours. She jokes that she is like a puppy, but in a way she really is.

Drawing, obviously. Athena can draw almost anything. If she can't she will at least have a go she see's it as development.
Listening, listening is so important, to take time to hear other people is something we take for granted.
Giving advice, it may seem strange but Athena is great at giving advice, even something simple to something so complex you may wonder why she is an artist and not a motivational speaker.
Cooking, having Italian roots Athena has some culinary skills passed down to her from her grandmother and her great grandmother. Whipping up Italian dishes and deserts.

Athena is a terrible speller, she loathes Writting with a passion.
Even though Athena may seem happy with her life and want the need to help others. Deeper inside she has very low self esteem, the slightest knock in her confidence makes her worry for days thinking she has done something wrong when she probably hasn't.
Athena's sleep patterns are varied, sometime she will sleep well then if she has a nightmare or get into a rut of inspiration and not sleep.

Athena was born in Italy, so naturally she was surrounded by art and culture till it was coming out of her ears. She knew from a young age that she wanted to draw and paint for a living. She would sit by the fountains over her home town sketching the statues and painting with water on the pavements. She moved through school and at the age of 18 Athena and her family moved to America to stay there permanently along with her two older brothers Arturo and Angelo. They had moved over to America when they were 18 and truthfully Athena was thinking the same until her parents informed her before she could tell them.

She attended and art school in the city and paid for it selling her paintings and commissions to art sellers and private buyers, she moved from her parents home to be close to her brother Arturo who owned a bookstore in a small town, she would help out in the store and would draw intricate designs on the chalk display board outside his store.

Unfortunately this happiness came to abrupt end when she was 23, her and Arturo were riding down the motorway on Arturo's motorbike , it was dark and raining. It was supposed to be a visit to there parents house as a surprise for there parents anniversary. Then a car swerved out of the opposite lane skidding all directions, hitting another car that slammed into the back of the motorbike flinging Arturo and Athena off, Arturo's body was slammed into the highway guard rails crushed by the car that had gone into the back of them. He died instantly. Athena however went sliding down the motorway made worse by the freezing cold rain, the asphalt cut into her body tearing down layer upon layer of skin close to muscle. She couldn't stop herself there was no grip and the pain was tremendous, she was unconscious for days as she lay fighting for her life in a hospital bed, so afraid and so alone. Skin grafts were applied to her body but it took a while to heal. Leaving the left side of her body scarred like a scene for a horror film. She avoids clothing that shows the sides of her body.

When she got out of the hospital she knew she wanted a new start and that start was Greenview, she built friendships and is still looking for someone to hold and love.
