SEEKING TALENT
[AMAIA] [ GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE:15 – 17]

Amaia has just turned sixteen. Unlike most teenagers, she dreads her birthday, as she feels like it should be treated like any other day. Deeply profound and slightly sardonic, she eases through her day in a series of thoughts and in her own company, until she sees Jasper, a boy she crushes on.

[JASPER] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 15 – 17]

Jasper is a shy guy with a moody exterior. He enjoys skateboards and record shops, and finds a bond with Amaia over their shared taste in music.

[SAM] [GENDER: MALE/FEMALE/GENDER-NONCONFORMING] [AGE: 15 – 17]

Sam is Amaia’s best friend, and the only person in the world able to curb Amaia’s frequent cynicism. Both Amaia and Sam also share a bond over music; Amaia deems Sam as the only other black kid in their kid who listen to The Smiths.
