Mak is a 13 year old, orphan girl, who is starting her first day of middle school as an 8th grader. She is often guarded and extremely introverted. Mak is constantly thinking about how she is not good enough in the eyes of society.
Mak is a smart girl, with hopes to go to college. She knows that she doesn't have the money to get to college.She decided to tryout for the school volleyball team, so that maybe one day volleyball could pay her way to college.
Mak wants to go to play volleyball for a future scholarship, but hates the idea of playing with others. She feels like nobody accepts her, her Mom hadn't chose to pick her, why would anyone else?
