The California Report
One Girls Life Changing Experience
CR: How did you did you take it when your parents told you you were made of Biogel?
Jenna: Well, at first a was really frustrated with my parents. Did they not trust me to keep a secret? I might have a different body but I still am the same girl. After I thought it through, I accepted the fact that I couldn't change that.
CR: Did you ever feel out of place, knowing that you were illegal?
Jenna: Yes. Everyone else seemed so care free. I couldn't tell anyone my secret. I couldn't be carefree like everyone else was.
CR: How does it feel to be a "lab rat" for your dads testing on biogel?
Jenna: It was very hard. I just learned that I can't change it. And they tried to do it out of love?
CR: Why did you still accept Ethan even though he has done bad things?
Jenna: I think it was just that.... We both had secrets to hide. We both were "monsters" and we could relate. I loved him very much and I am very sad he is gone.
CR: Now your 200 and living with Allys. How does it feel?
Jenna: Its fine. I've always been friends with Allys. Although Ethan has been gone for a while now, I'm pushing through. Overall it's great.
CR: How does it feel to sort of be the first one to live after this accident?
Jenna: Its diffidently a challenge. You don't have anyone to relate too... Your all on you own it feels like.
CR: So in the end, since it has been 200 years, do you know your identity?
Jenna: I never will fully understand. But I do know who I am now. and Ive learned that it doesn't matter who you were... It matters who you are now. I do know my physical features though.
CR: How do you plan to explain what happened to you, to Kayla? [Your daughter]
Jenna: I don't plan too till she is older. But when I do, I will take it slow. She will understand. It might give her a good understanding of me and why I am the way I am. I mean I did kinda create history! But for now I will just wait for that day to come.
CR: I heard you lost your memory, did you regain any?
Jenna: Yes I have. Along the way with all my experiences, one thought led to another, and it sparked something. I am starting to remember lots of things.
CR: Did you ever think you would go through something as powerful as this?
Jenna: No. Out of all people I was the one who had to go through this life changing experience? I am amazed that I was the one who got this....
CR: Are you happy or sad that there is someone else like you in the world?
Jenna: Happy! I am so happy! Everyday me and Ally's talk about our experiences going through this. It is such a relief knowing that I am not the only one. Ally's is the one person I can share things with. And we can get through this together.
CR: When you first learned about your backups, how did you feel?
I was very creeped out! I know somewhere, there is another me. In that computer, just stored up. Its very creepy to know if you get in another accident, you won't be yourself. I would basically be a computer. All the memories are just stored up... And its very scary! I am glad I destroyed them.
Jenna is a great girl and I was blessed to meet her.
