Physical Description of Child Carmen is a 16-year-old girl attending Hollywood Senior High School. She was born on December 10, 1998, which makes her exactly 16 years and 10 months. She is 5 feet 1 inch tall, brown eyes, and black hair. She notes that her hair is naturally dark brown, but she recently dyed it black to cover up the previous bright purple hair dye. She weights 125 pounds. According to her age group, she is average height and weight (Feldman, 2015). She was wearing dark purple glasses at all times.

From a social and personality perspective, her identity-versus-identity-confusion stage has given her some positive outcomes. For instance, she is aware of her uniqueness and she has embraced that. She enjoys art and anything that has to do with freedom of self-expression. The moment she took art class last year in her old high school and was the only student to pass with an A, she knew there was something unique about her. Most of the time her teacher used her art assignments as examples for her class and other classes to see. She described it as the easiest and most exciting class she had ever taken (Feldman, 2015).
