It was a suprise to both Eve and John Christenson when they found out they would be having another child, and to their joy on April 12 at 10:00PM Amber Rain Jackson was born. She was the youngest born, having an older sister, who is three years older than her, named Rachel, nicknamed Rach. She was barely 3 months old when Amber's father walked out on Eve, leaving her to raise her two young daughters on her own.Eve was devestated to find out that John had been cheating on Eve while married with a model and singer named Kylie and had another daughter named Georgia Dawn after Rachel was born,and left Eve broken hearted. Another dsughter was born 2 years after Amber. John named het Karen Storm,not realizing it was a connection to his two oldest. Life in Mobile, Alabama was hard for a single mother with two children and making ends meet, and for Eve it was no simple task, and working dead end jobs was enough to barely put the food on the table. Whether Rach and Amber noticed, was unknown to Eve as she tried to support her family, and hiding her pain behind work and trying to find work as an actress, but she gave up her dream by moving the family to Nashville where her sister, Emily lived and stayed close by while she worked and Emily took care of Amber and Rach. Eventually at an audition Eve met and then married her husband, Gareth-David Jackson. And the family then moved back to Alabama where the family spent most of their time.
And that was Amber's earliest memories as a young child. Growing up in Alabama she lived in a town where everyone knew who she was and being a quiet child she had a few friends that she played with, apart from tagging along behind her sister. Her sister was someone Amber looked up to from an early age, and being so individual, she hoped to be like her when she got older.She was more reserved than her wild child sister, and even then she knew that her step-father Gareth was not her bilogical father. Her curiosity of her birth father stemmed to a new high when she asked her mother why her father did not look like her when she was 9 years old. Her mother didn't want tell her, but the impending questions seemed important to her young daughter, so after a sitdown with Amber, she finally knew that her father left when she was just a baby. Questions ran through her mind, though she did not tell her mother or sister that she wondered why her father left and if it was because he didn't want her, or didn't love her. the urge to search for him was nagging at her, but she never did for she didn't want to upset her mother for she knew that she went through much pain during those days when she was just a baby. To forget certian things were nagging at her, she focused on her dancing that she had been doing since she was small. Ballroom and Salsa were more her styles but she loved most of it more than she did her school work. Running was a sport that she loved apart from dancing and it helped her think and sort out problems. She found that her stress went away when she ran and it seemed to be a drug that she could not avoid.
As she got older, her best times were spent when she visited her family in Nashville Tennessee. Her cousin Julianne and Amber were closer than any pair of cousins could be, and seemed to grow closer as both girls reached their teen years. They spent summers together, but managed to keep in touch along with Julianne's brothers Derek, Jesse, and Cody. Her older cousin, Chelsie was more closer to Rach, but all of them were really close and spent most of their summers at Eve's sister, Emily's house. When she passed away, it was a real blow to all of them, espeically Julianne. Amber spent more time with her knowing she would need her to help her grieve. As both girls grieved, they grew even closer, and spent as much time as they could before Amber went back to Alabama. Julianne and Amber kept in contact through e-mails and phone calls, but they got further apart as they both entered high school.
Freshman year was hard for Amber. Being quiter than some, it was hard for her to make friends at first. She suffered ridicule for being so unique for her style was more selective than some, and though it was not modern style, she had a classy style that remided people of the time when Audrey Hepburn was in the bigtime. To avoid people teasing her, she took to the dance floor, or the track, but her real love came when she was offered a spot as the lead in Romeo and Juliet and was instantly hooked to acting. For the first time in her life she felt the pull of something that she truly wanted to do, and nothing was not going to stop her. Then chance came that at the end of the year, Rach got accepted to Altamont University around the same time Amber's mother and father both got new jobs that would move the family to Orlando, Florida. That peaked Amber's interest to look at Altamont Academy and soon found that the school would be perfect for her after seeing how extensive the classes were. Getting a scholarship was the icing on the cake for Amber and now that her senior year is about to begin, she's eagerly looking forward to what is to come.
Personality: Amber is more withdrawn and reserved than most people in her family, and can be shy when she meets new people. Being from the south, she has a kindness that brims through her and there is never a day when she doesn't have a smile on her face. When around people she knows, she can be a social butterfly and never shut up once you get her talking about something she really likes. When around people she doesn't know, she is the careful observer checking people out and see how they react before engaging in converation. She can be serious when she wants to be, but for the most part she has a class that she was taught, and has a deep respect for everyone she meets. Sometimes her mouth can get her in trouble, and she has a firey temper when she gets riled up, but for the most part she has a heart of gold.
Appearence: She is short for her age, standing just under 5'3 1/2 and hates it with a burning passion, but knows that she is still young, so she has plenty of time to grow. She has golden skin inherited from her mother's Native American side and from spending most of her time outside. Her eyes, a dark brown change with her mood and are round and expressive. She has long wavy dark brown hair and in some lights it appears to be black. She normally wears it loose, and often dyes it red to show off her individuality, but when she is running and dancing she usually wears it in a loose braid. Her clothing style is more on the classic style with hints of a vintage style that she learned from watching her sister. She usually dresses in dresses and skirts that reflect her personality, but there is a classy style to her when she wears dresses and goes all out in formal style. One day she could wear bell bottom jeans and a tank top with retro looking scarves, and the next wear something off the wall like a form fitting dress. It usually depends on her mood. She is a bargain shopper so you'd most likely find her in a vintage shop somewhere. She is individual so her reflecting that in her style is a must in her book.
