Jerrika has always been a quiet and shy person. Growing up, she didn't talk to anyone other than her brother, their parents included. Jerrika and Jared were always very close. It wasn't until Jerrika was 12 that she finally started talking to people other than her brother. Even now though, it is very rare to hear her speak, she only talks to a few people, and her brother is her preferred way of communication. A lot of people think Jerrika is slow or mute, but on the contrary, she is very smart, near the top of her class.
Recently her brother has been trying to push her out of her comfort zone, worried that Jerrika is becoming too dependent on him. Because of this, she is trying to be more independent, to make more friends, not wanting to worry her brother any more that she has, but she's finding it extremely difficult. Jerrika is very observant. Since she doesn't talk much, she's picked up the habit of listening in on other people's conversations, and a lot of the time people don't even notice her listening.

Jerrika and her twin brother Jared had a relatively normal childhood. Both
their parents were there for them, even though they weren't together. They
were able to share custody of the twins without getting the courts involved.
Amelia, Jerrika's mother, got remaried when the twins were 10. Her new
husband had a daughter of his own, but Jerrika always steered clear of the
other girl.
When Jerrika was a baby, her parents were worried that there was something
wrong with her when her brother started talking, but she didn't. After seeing
about a dozen doctors who all said their daughter was in perfect health physically
and mentally, Jerrika's parents were at a loss on what to do.
At twoyears old, Jerrika still hadn't said a word to her parents, as far as they were
concerned she hadn't started speaking at all, but in fact she was talking, but
only to her brother. They only found this out, when her mother overheard the
siblings talking when Jerrika though no one else was around. Once her mother
knew she could speak, she tried desperately to get Jerrika to speak to her, but
she still wouldn't say a word directly to her mother, she would whisper to her
brother what she wanted to say and he would relay the message for her. Jerrika
was taken to may psychiatrists and therapists at this point to see if they could
get the girl to speak but they were all unsuccessful. Finally her parents gave up
and just let her be.
In elementary school there were lots of questions about why she wouldn't speak
and a lot of teasing, but none of it ever seemed to get to Jerrika. No matter how
hard the other kids tried to get a rise out of her, to get her to say anything, she
never said a word. It wasn't until her Jared finally broke down and told her that
she had to use her own voice, to speak for herself, that she started to do just that.
Jerrika is extremely close to Jared and doesn't like to worry him, she could tell her
behavior was doing just that, so she's trying her best to be 'normal'.
