Grace Tanbien | 18 | “The Shy One” | FC: Amanda Seyfried | Open
Grace Tanbien has lived her whole life in the shadows of her older siblings. She’s the type of girl you’d expect to be hiding behind a few loose strands of hair. She’s the girl that never raised her hand when a question was asked during class. She’s the one at the back of the room who always speaks in her low, barely audible voice. Basically, Grace rarely ever voices out her opinions.
Her older sister has graduated from Dartmouth and is on her way to becoming a successful lawyer while her older brother is working for BBC all the way in Europe. Grace, on the other hand, is barely passing her classes in school. She wants to do something about this, but her terribly low self esteem holds her back. This year, however, Grace is determined to change that. She entered the House of Eovi in hopes that she would be able to force herself out of her shell under the tough pressure. She tries to laugh more, talk more, and just be friendlier in general, but will she need more help than she thought?
Inside the House of Eovi, Grace will find standing out to be easier than she thought. She gets an easy head start to people liking her and it’s all thanks to her physical beauty. Now, all eyes are on her and she has to prove that she’s more than just a pretty face.
Why did you apply for House of Eovi? I wanted to do something I wouldn’t normally do.
What do you want to gain from House of Eovi? Confidence.
-> Grace’s secret: She was beaten numerous times by her father for not meeting the expectations set by her older siblings as a kid.
