Here is my character analysis. My character is named Elizabeth Mizzian, she is a 16 year old girl from New York. Her brother is Mike Mizzian and she likes a boy named Tishon Prieto. Her goals are to win nationals for cheerleading and become captain of the water polo team. Her mission in the story is to meet her pen pal friend, from France, Riley Reed. Her desires are to go to college and become a successful entrepreneur.

The setting takes place in New York. Elizabeth will finally get to meet a friend she met through pen pal, Riley Reed. When Riley arrives to New York she encounters a guy named Tishon. Tishon is a guy that Elizabeth has a crush on and they have been messaging each other through facebook. After Riley’s and Tishon’s encounter, Riley heads to meet Elizabeth at a Starbucks near Time Square. They have a conversation over some pumpkin spice lattes and Riley mentions the boy she met and shows her a picture of him on Instagram. Elizabeth is distraught when she finds out that the boy was Tishon and heads home devastated. Elizabeth tells Mike, her brother, about what had happened. Mike has an idea of making Riley fall for Iniesta Hernandez, who is a friend of his that plays for the soccer team in New York. Mike messages Iniesta through facebook and tells him that he met someone that he might like. While, Mike is telling Iniesta about Riley, Elizabeth messages Riley and tells her to meet her at a restaurant. Riley heads to her table at the restaurant and is surprised to see a guy instead of Elizabeth. Riley asks who he was and why he was there. He explains that Elizabeth and Mike had arranged the date. Riley is shocked and leaves the restaurant and confronts Elizabeth and they get in a huge argument. Riley decides to leave back to France and end their friendship. The End.

The experience was great, we had a lot of brainstorming to do as a group and each member gave great ideas. I loved creating an imaginary character and setting up social media accounts to make it more realistic. I felt like there was a connection with the made up character and I. It was a bit difficult in trying to set up a whole concise storyline that had a foundation. Here is a link to the Instagram and Facebook profiles of Elizabeth Mizzian. https://instagram.com/elizabethmizzian/     https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100010445298719IMG_1893 IMG_1894 IMG_1890
