SashaHappiness

Sasha is the youngest daughter of Jennifer and Mark Swarofski of Los Angles, California. She has one older brother, Jason. The two have always gotten along well and Jason has always been protective of his little sister. Sasha is nine-teen years old, while her brother Jason, is quite a bit older at twenty-nine years old.

Though the two are very much the same in ways, they are very opposite as well. Both are very smart, sharp witted, and can be on the cunning side at times. But Sasha is not a business person (where Jason and their father both have a head for business), and she enjoys excitement and having fun. She likes to hang out with her friends, and go out and party.

Though Jason and Sasha get along she has never gotten along overly well with her parents. Her parents don’t understand her and think that she will never amount to anything, which makes Sasha even more determined to finish school. Her mother, Jennifer, is very selfish and is only out for herself. While her father, Mark, is a business man out to make as much money as humanly possible; he also has a bad habit of never listening to his children (either one of them) when they come to him about something. He brushes them aside in trade for the all mighty dollar.

Recently from a conversation that Jason over heard their parents having he found out that he and Sasha are not actually related at all. Sasha was adopted as a baby and no one ever knew that she was adopted. Some twenty years later the truth comes out and Jason felt it was time for her to know the truth. He took her aside and talked with her about it — and it has forever changed her relationship with him…

Sasha is single, smart and beautiful. She is a student at the University of Hawaii, Lanai. She is studying criminal psychology in hopes of one day being a criminal psychologist (when she decides to settle down enough to do that)…but now she is trying to find out what she has gotten herself into…she is finding herself lost in a world that is not her own.
