Hayley comes from a pretty poor family. And yeah, that has had some major impacts on her as a person. She's very principled and has great discipline. Hayley knows very well that there are things in life that she may never have access to, no matter how hard she works for it. Even so, her parents have given her everything she's ever had in life, and if she wants more, she'll have to get it herself. She knows all this. Hayley also knows that if she is to be anything in life, she'll have to be well educated first.
Being in KPYA is great. The teaching staff are amazing and the school has an influential presence that will assure her any job she wants as long as she can graduate. Besides, having KU means she can go there straight after high school and her parents' staff discount will help her on her way. Hayley's academic scholarship means she'll have no problem on the education front at all.
Hayley doesn't need all that much in her life. All she wants is the best for her family, maybe some small things for herself. She's too practical for her own good, really. Being a big sister can make you like that. She loves her family and will do anything for them, including working part-time jobs during the summer to help pay for her sisters' dance and music classes.
Hayley doesn't think she has time for dating or love or whatever, but that doesn't mean she can't be lonely. Although, if you ask her, it's funny that she can feel that way considering she has three siblings. Sometimes, she just feels like she has no other connections to other people in the world other than her own flesh and blood.
It's kind of a secret, but Hayley loves trashy romances. She doesn't consider herself a romantic; she's a strong feminist who scoffs at stereotypical gender roles and rages against the inequality that comes from being a woman. But, BUT, she will devour any romance novel you give her.
Although her family can't afford it, Hayley really likes nice things. She can get pretty envious of others, especially since KPYA is a hot spot for the rich and famous, or at least their kids. She wants to have nice clothes, even though she doesn't have the time or patience to coordinate a cute outfit. She wants expensive tech gadgets, even though she can access the Internet easily enough on computer terminals on campus. She wants to try different and pricey foods, even though she's never hungry and can always count on a home-cooked meal. Hayley wants things she may never have, and she sometimes hates that others do. All she's ever wanted in life, she's had to work for, why are these kids so different?
The Collinses are all Catholic, but Hayley has lost her faith. That's what you get for having an analytical mind, she supposes. She's much too scientific to truly believe that there is a God in this world, who loves unconditionally and is always looking out for her. If there was a God, she wouldn't have her random bouts of depression throughout her life.
As she's approaching her senior year in high school, the bouts of depression are getting both worse and more frequent. Now, there's even some anxiety thrown in. Why? That's because despite Hayley's academic excellence, she has no real idea of what she wants to do in life. All she knows is that she wants to be successful. Thing is, what determines success? She knows it's not money, she's seen enough in life to know that. Maybe it's family, which she has, and yet she still feels empty. Is it love? Well, she doesn't have time for love. Besides, no one has given her much of a second look in 17 years, who'd start now?
Summer would be a great reprieve for Hayley, maybe a chance to figure out what she truly wants in life. But as the start of the school year draws closer, she's getting ever more frayed at the edges.
Hayley can be very blunt, because she values honesty as a virtue. That may earn her both friends and enemies. She can also be very sarcastic when she wants to, and almost always when she's annoyed or hurt. It can be said that Hayley spends way too much of her time studying, but that's what you get for being a poor scholarship student. Thing is, despite her practicality and discipline thus far in life, she's beginning to be lost and confused, and may go down a road she never imagined for herself.
➳ lovers:Hayley has never been in any kind of romantic relationship. However, she wants very much to be loved and pampered by someone. That said, she doesn't exactly actively do anything to pursue a relationship with anyone. She doesn't think she has the time for that, nor does it fit into her life plan for now.
➳ friends:She has more study buddies than friends, really. Although, to be honest, she doesn't really study at all in her study groups, but rather uses it as a chance to get some social interaction in. As such, her group is mostly those who are like her, who care more about academics than much else. She doesn't like drama, and she hates those who create them for the sake of the reality show. She doesn't want to be involved in fake friendships for any sake, so her (sometimes boring) study friends will do fine. Thing is, she's in a vulnerable place right now, and will definitely be up for some corruption.
➳ enemies:As nice as she presents herself to be, Hayley has many, many people she doesn't like. She has a strong work ethic and dislikes anyone who don't put in effort in their academic life. Hayley is no fan of drama outside of romance novels and tries her best to stay away from anyone who actively mess their lives up for the sake of a reality show. Rich kids are all on Hayley's secret shit list. She is resentful that they have so much in life just handed to them.
➳ family:Being the oldest sister, she can be very protective of her family. Yes, even over her big brother. She can be unhappy with how poor her family is, but no one is allowed to talk bad about them. They may be poor, but they have strong beliefs and principles in life.
I want to mess this straight-laced girl up, not gonna lie. She's spent way too much of her life worrying about the future and trying to make it as bright as possible despite not knowing how other than through a good education. She's always put everyone else in her life first and that is one thing that's going to change from here on out. She just doesn't know it yet. How hard and fast she falls is up to what kind of plots I can get with other characters here.

We're excited, Hayley Collins, that you chose us as your new school. But don't worry, you won't have much time to think about things like settling in; drama is always around the corner and K-TV's eyes and ears are watching your every move and plotting how best to ruin your life on national television!
Please remember to submit all of your necessary information to the registrar's office before you go out and enjoy campus life and your new classes. We wouldn't want you to fall through the cracks, now would we?
Ahhh! I love her, she's basically the perfect character I'd imagined. You're wonderful for taking her <3
Don't forget to post in this thread as well as your claims just so we can keep track of all the characters for when we switch things around!
