Pilar Adams bio

Pilar Adams was born to Sam and Linda Adams in San Antonio, Texas, on May 15, 1997. In 2002, the family moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where Sam got a job in a factory. Although money was always short in the household, they made ends meet, with Linda picking up temporary jobs as a waitress and grocery store clerk.

Pilar strove to maintain good grades during her school years. Although not a naturally gifted student, Pilar always pleased her teachers with her effort and dedication. She worked hard and received mostly low Bs and some Cs for her grades, but she was always well-liked and welcomed in every class.

Since money was tight for the Adams family, Sam usually fixed things around the house instead of buying new or taking anything to a repair shop. Pilar often watched him work on the toaster that wouldn't pop up or the fan in the bathroom that wouldn't run. As the years passed, she began making her own repairs.

As high school graduation approached, Pilar was disappointed with her prospects for college. Her grades were unremarkable, and her test scores were disappointing. Certainly, she had no reason to receive any scholarships. She applied for financial aid, but the grants weren't enough to live on. So, Pilar moved to Oxford, Mississippi, and got a job.

After she had established residency, Pilar enrolled at the University of Mississippi, where she occasionally takes some courses and then takes a semester off whenever she needs to work more. Her interest is in psychology, but she struggled through the classes. Just like in high school, she worked hard but rarely made above a C.

Her modest academic performance made it hard for her to justify taking out student loans, so recently, Pilar has primarily just worked for the university. She gets a small discount and takes classes when she has time. Right now, she would describe herself as being in a bit of a rut, just working and not really aiming towards anything.
