Name: Ava Elizabeth Campbell (Face claim ~ Elizabeth Gillies)
Chosen by: Zayn Malik
Ava was born in Los Angeles, Florida. Her father left her mother before she was even born as her mother was only seventeen when she got pregnant. Ava didn’t have a very stable childhood, and her and her mother got shunted from shelter to shelter, which meant that she never had a place to call home. At eleven, she was finally separated from her mother and put in a foster care system. She began to attend school for the first time in her life.
Because she’d never been to kindergarten or school, she didn’t really know how to respond to other kids her age as she was used to interacting with adults. This resulted in her being a bit of a social outcast. She got picked on for her second hand clothes and overall poverty and she resented school. This in turn led to her dropping out.
She dropped out when she was seventeen and decided to travel the world. So, she packed what little belongings she had, and set off around the world, vowing to do something new everyday. Signing up for an online dating site was one of those new things… She went to every country imaginable; France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, India, China, Japan, Hawaii, New Zealand… You name it, she’s been there. She lived in cheap accommodation and got temporary jobs when she could. When money was tight, she’d sleep on the street, which was ok because she knew how to look after herself since she was little. She finally felt like she was being her own person, finding herself, making her own decisions, and that made her happy.
Because she was so busy travelling, she didn’t really keep up with what was going in pop culture, and had never even heard of One Direction until they contacted her about the two-week vacation with Zayn. She’s never really believed in true love because of her mother’s troubled relationships with men, and she puts a wall up whenever anyone tries to get romantically involved with her. She’s quite a hard person to crack, but if you’re ever lucky enough to, she’s yours forever.
Hello there Ava, how are you today?
Why ask that question? People always ask that. Its stupid, you know I’m going to say good. And if I say bad, there’s nothing you can do about it. Pointless…
Why did you sign up for the dating site?
Well… I kind of regret it now. But I promised myself I would do something new everyday while I was travelling, it was kind of like a way of re-creating myself… Anyway, one of those new things was signing up for that site. It was pretty spur of the moment, I just rocked up to a dodgy little internet café and did it.
And how do you feel about the coming two weeks with Zayn?
I’m kind of excited. I was dreading it at first… but the ideas grown on me. I decided to make it a positive thing. And I mean, it’s a free holiday. I’m curious to see what happens with him.
