Adaina is simply known as "Jess" among her pen-pals, but she decides to reveal her true identity to her close friend, Jant Leeps.

To my newest pen pal, Jant Leeps.
Hello Jant, 
How are you? You may know me as  'Jess' but my name’s Adaina. I am originally from Germany but immigrated to the United States as a 22-year-old student to follow my dreams to become a writer. But life and its unguessable challenges got to me, and my mind and soul froze for eternity. I was left with just an empty body. Oh, dear Jant, as I am writing you this self-expression letter with shaking hands but yet with a fulfilled pleased heart. Well, I will first like to say my soul is at ease now and happy, and that my shaking hands are due to my nervousness because of some of the things that I'm about to write in this letter. I'd also like to say how thankful I am for having you as a pen pal because after reading your letters I cannot help but realize how much alike we are, even though we are of different ages. I have also always wanted to speak to someone apart from a psychologist, this is just among my many thoughts, but I think that we sometimes need someone completely different than a psychologist. You know, someone that has experienced and survived life difficult challenges that one is experiencing now. I believe psychologists are trained to keep calm during any given situation, and it's their job to try and understand and make you feel better about yourself and whatever you are going through. You are of course welcome to give your honest opinion about these thoughts of mine  My darling, Jant. You see, I have had role models in the past that decided to take the easy way out when life gave them difficult challenges that they thought they could not beat. Oh, Jant. I have felt like this at times, and I think it's because we often doubt ourselves and the capability to do things, and our words and thoughts simply become one of an empty and fearful child. Yes, I too have made some mistakes in the past and I wish I could have done things differently, but honestly, I have learned from my mistakes, and now I just want to be able to express myself without my mind being imprisoned. Oh, Jant. I do constantly think about the future and what awaits me, but as for now, I just want peace. I want to experience love from the people that are available to give it. I want to touch the star before it disappears before my very own eyes. Well, my precious, Jant.  I'm almost at the end of my letter and I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart because the best thing about this journey has been having you on my team and that has given me the ability, strength, and confidence I have found within myself to openly write to you, and get nothing but complete love. Life isn't always about money, it isn't about materialistic things, but showing unconditional support through difficult times, and having love and acceptance for one another.  
Yours sincerely, your pen pal, Adaina.
