Wendy Smythe | Junior | Age 16 | FC: Taylor Swift | Open
“I guess I’m just ready for a new start, and I know God will help me through it.”
Wendy is the daughter of the Tree Hill High’s resident Presbyterian preacher, and after 16 years, has finally convinced her parents to stop home schooling her and let her go to school. She loves her father and mother very much, and she loves her religion, but she wants to experience the world.
More innocent than she realize’s Wendy could easily be influenced. She’s never really been very good at saying no, which could also cause her some problems. She’s never really had many friends before, and is extremely naive when it comes to high school. Her strategy is to just be nice to everyone, and surely they will be her friend. But, unfortunately, high school doesn’t work that way. It’s no secret that she’s a ministers daughter, which causes her a lot of ridicule at times.
Although she wants to break free from her parents world, she wants to hold onto her beliefs. Often, she doesn’t understand why people don’t believe the same things she does, and she tries to explain why they should, which is very often a big turn off.
In the end, Wendy is sweet at heart, and even though sometimes she may try too hard, she always means well. Will she be able to survive high school life, or will she run back to the protection of her parents homeschooling?
