Personal History Deserae is the youngest of two born to Benson and Janelle Freely. When she was eight, her mother was hit killed by a drunk driver while walking the family dog at night. As Benson was a police officer and couldn't guarantee he would be home for his children, he made the choice to move his mother-in-law, also recently widowed, into the family home. So, for the next four years, Deserae was raised mostly by her grandmother, though always had her father around to spend time with.

She learned to cook, bake, cross stitch, embroider, knit, crochet, and sew from her traditionalist grandmother. Des enjoys doing these activities along with reading, but her true passion is video games. Her brother, Nick, taught her to play when she was younger, and it was the only activity that the family, minus Grandma, did together. Des loves to best Nick in games, though she’s not that great at first person shooters.

Aside from losing her mother, Des had a normal childhood. She was always happy and well cared for. She did well in school, often having high grades. What she didn’t have was a social life outside her online communities and games. She was always socially awkward and introverted, she didn’t like talking especially small talk. Preferring a good book or movie over a party always saw her left out of the fun. She had a few close friends, but not a huge circle like most of her peers.

Her good grades landed her a scholarship to Princeton University for a History major and Visual Arts minor. She was excited to go to Princeton and get out of the small town she’d grown up in. Unfortunately, though she opted out of the senior prank, she still found herself in the same trouble as her peers. One of her friends had gone along with what was intended to a be a minor prank of filling as many rooms as possible with streamers and balloons but chickened out when someone started handing out cans of spray paint. She called Des for a ride, and being a loyal friend, Des went to the school to pick her up. Unfortunately, before she could find her friend, the police showed up and arrested all of them.

Despite knowing Desarae, and the fact that she wouldn’t normally do such a thing, the arresting officer still decided that she must be lying about not being involved. Des found herself charged with vandalism and facing court. All of this somehow got back to Princeton and she lost her scholarship. Thankfully, due to pressure from her father, the incident was more thoroughly investigated and Deserae’s name was cleared along with half of the seniors who were charged that night. The same day she learned the charges were being dropped, she received her rejection letter from Princeton.

Heartbroken, Deserae started looking for universities she could afford to go to. It wasn’t that they didn’t have a lot of money, but with Nick already in university, there wasn’t a large fund for her to pull from. Between her earnings from the cashiering job she’d had since she turned 16, and what was left of the education fund her father had set up, Deserae found Gulf Coast University was the only university offering a visual arts program that she could afford. She decided to drop history as a major and just go for visual arts. Her father wasn’t very happy with her school choice but couldn’t argue with her reasons for choosing the school.
