Character Interviews: Vandelya Lynn Tucker & Carter Ian Daniels!


Interview with Vandelya Lynn Tucker
By: Jamie Loeak

A journey toward discovering two characters.


Jamie Loeak: So, your name is Vandelya. How do you pronounce that?

Vandelya: Van-Dell-Yuh. My mother thought it was pretty and decided that was my name when she first looked at me.

JL: That’s interesting! Do you like having such a unique name?

Vandelya: Most times. I don’t have to look up if my teacher calls out for Ashley or anything. 

JL: So, you’re in school. What grade are you in?

Vandelya: I’m a junior in high school.

JL: Do you participate in any extracurricular activities?

Vandelya: No, I focus on just school.

JL: Okay, so what about after school. What kinds of things do you do?

Vandelya: Well, I like to head to a little field before and after school. It’s kind of my place.

JL: I’m assuming it’s important to you. Is there a reason behind it?

Vandelya: I don’t know. It’s just kind of a place that I go to when I feel lonely or something like it.

JL: Do you feel lonely often?

Vandelya: I don’t really want to talk about it right now. Is that fine?

JL: Of course. So, what would you feel more comfortable talking about?

Vandelya: Honestly, I don’t really know.

JL: Well, since we want the audience to know a little about you, why don’t we talk about your family and friends?
Vandelya: Uh, I guess that’s fine. I live with my mom. She works hard to keep things normal for me now that my dad is gone. There was an accident and..... *she trails off*
JL: I understand. Would talking about your friends turn things around?

Vandelya: Not really. I don’t have any friends.

JL: Oh. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to make things worse.

Vandelya: It’s okay, but if you don’t mind, I don’t want to answer any more questions.

JL: It’s fine. Thank you for agreeing to the interview.

Vandelya: You’re very welcome.

Interview with Carter Ian Daniels

By: Jamie Loeak

A journey toward discovering two characters.

JL: So, Carter, you recently moved to North Carolina. Why here?

Carter: My mom used to talk about North Carolina when I was a little kid. Back then, she used to read and tell me stories.

JL: What stories made you choose to come here?

Carter: She grew up here, and I thought that coming here would help me find myself. I mean, I’m seventeen and I’ve got to figure out who I am.

JL: And North Carolina’s going to do that for you.

Carter: Yes.

JL: So, what are your goals while you’re here? What steps are you going to take?

Carter: Well, I’m going to enroll in the local high school first. Then, I guess I’ll just make friends. See what kind of person I am.

JL: So, your friends will tell you the kind of person you are?

Carter: No, but who I become when with them does.

JL: You sound like you know this from experience.

Carter: Yes, I do.

JL: Can you tell me about this?

Carter: It’s the reason why I left Hartford. The people I dealt with weren’t good. They weren’t good influences.

JL: I understand. Is that why you left? Your friends?

Carter: They weren’t my friends. I didn’t seek out friends back then.

JL: Then it was your family that you ran from?

Carter: Yes, it was. Now, if you don’t mind, I don’t want to answer any other questions.

JL: You’re fine, and I apologize for bringing out bad memories.

Carter: It’s okay. I did agree to this interview.

JL: Thank you.

Carter: You’re welcome.
