The FSEB Changes its Policy
Exclusive Interview With Jenna Angeline Fox
CT: What was it like to wake after such a long time period?
JF: It was very shocking to understand what was going on at first. The worst part would probably not remembering my family, friends, And myself. I didn't know where to go from there. I felt lost and worthless, but mostly curious. Every day I would improve, but that made me wonder if improving really is a good thing.I learned how one accident can change your entire life in practically minutes.
CT: Why were you so eager to go to school?
JF: I really wanted to go to school because I wanted a life. I wanted to be like everyone else, and I couldn't do that without education, and more importantly friends. I was desperate to make friends who will support me and honestly tell me what I am doing wrong, and always be by my side no matter what.
CT: How did your relationship with Lily change as time went on?
JF : I think the biggest change that went on between me and lily was that we got a little more comfortable with each other and we could open up and talk to each other without a problem. I think Lily was the one who understood me the most because she helped me through my problems.
CT: Why were Kara and Locke so important to you?
JF: They were best friends. We had been together for so long and then suddenly they are gone. At times I feel guilty for what happened to them. If I had thought just once before giving them the keys, my whole entire life would be different and so would theirs. I still hear them in my head, and I like to listen to their voices because it assures me that they are with me.
CT: What were your true feelings about Ethan and Dane?
JF: I thought that Ethan was very trustworthy. I could somewhat relate to Ethan. I could share anything with him and he would do the same. He made me feel like I belong in the world. He was the best thing that happened to me after the accident. Dane makes me curious. I still don’t know what was wrong with him, all I knew was that he was jealous of Ethan and for some reason he wanted to be better then him. Ethan and I never really talked about him that much. When I think of him, I think off an empty soul.
CT: How did you feel when you found out that you were made of bio gel?
JF: It was absolutely horrifying. I felt like a freakish monster. I felt worthless. At first I thought that I was finally moving on, but then knowing about my self really pushed me back. I didn't know what to do from that point on. The worst part was being illegal. I felt cheated by my parents because they weren't honest with me and also because they didn't let me die. Latter on I learned that they just loved me too much to let go but, it was still a lot of pressure.
CT: Were you mad at Allys when you found out she told her parents?
JF: Surprisingly, I was not mad at Allys because if I was her I would have done the same thing. I was not scared about what was going to happen next, I was just curious. I didn’t really care that I might be arrested or killed.I had much better things to worry about. I only cared about Allys is health at the time. Ethan was very concerned for me and he even said that we should run away, but I kind of wanted to see what would happen.
CT: What is it like to be older than 260 years?
JF: It is not bad, but at times it can be slightly boring. For 70 years I enjoyed my life with Ethan and now I plan on living my last few years with my beautiful daughter Kayla and my friend Allys.
CT: Describe your relationship with Mr. Bender?
JF: Mr. Bender was one of my first friends after my accident. I remember when I first met him like it was yesterday. I could always talk to Mr. Bender freely. We both knew each other's deepest secrets. I could relate to Mr. Bender because we both had identity problems. He also came in handy when I needed to use his net book.
CT: What are your thoughts about the point system?
JF: Now that I am a parent, I have realized that what my parents did was just because they loved me too much to let go, so I think that the point system should increase the percentage of bio gel allowed because I know what its like to feel illegal and I don’t want anyone to feel that way.
