Millie

Natalia's Mom
Millie is a force of nature. She is a bold, take-charge person and always says what is on her mind. There is no nonsense with Millie. She is very self-confident and loves fashion and design. The executive producer of the family studio, she is very intelligent and has a good business sense. She loves saving money, and will always be looking for deals or sales. She is also very technical, and loves keeping up with trends and learning new skills in the computer, design, and video worlds. She loves meat, lobster, and dark chocolate. Millie is the boss of the Indresano household and somehow manages to help run a business and take care of two children, plus her fur baby, all while looking fantastic every time she heads out the door.

Michael

Natalia's Dad
Michael is a workaholic family man, and all of his time is spent either with his kids or at his successful photography and video studio. He is very talented at what he does, and is a bit of a  perfectionist. He has a tendency to be slightly OCD. Michael is soft-spoken and kind, and has a lot of wisdom for his age. He tends to be more traditional, and old-fashioned, preferring paper to digital, and still dresses up when heading into the office on a Saturday. He is an expert on business matters, real estate, and investing, on top of his bountiful knowledge of photography. He and Mille’s opposing personalities balance each other out, but one thing that drives Millie crazy is how he uses Windex to clean anything and everything.

Michael

Natalia's Little Brother
Michael is very intelligent for his 5 years. He is amazingly tech-savvy, and his parents would not be surprised if he went on to become an astronaut or an engineer. He is a very sweet little boy, and is friendly to new and old people alike. He loves to say goodbye to everyone before leaving and always remembers his manners, saying “thank you” whenever someone helps him. However, at home, he can be a bit of a devil. Baby Michael has a TON of energy, which possibly contributes to his defiance when asked to do something by his mother. His sweetness always wins out, and his mother cannot resist his kisses. He is adorable to a fault, and he is full of love. He looks up to his older sister, and gets along with his her as reasonably well as siblings can. His cuteness and spunk charms everyone who meets him.

Natalia

Our Heroine
An outgoing and fun-loving 9-year-old, this is our heroine. Natalia is bold and has confidence. She is not afraid of standing up for herself. She once pulled a meeting with her principal without asking her teacher so she could get something straightened out. Natalia is very smart and is a natural leader, taking after both of her parents. She has many ideas and hobbies. She loves judo, karate, muay thai, drama, chorus and dance, to name a few. She likes trying new things. Though she has a tough interior, she is still very affectionate and loving, and enjoys being social, both with adults and kids her own age.

Barbie

Natalia's Best Friend
Barbie is a spunky red-head who knows exactly what she wants. A bit of a mischief-maker, she is lovable, but often has to be kept in check by Natalia when her ideas or her antics lead her into trouble. Often the yin to Natalia’s yang, they balance each other out, and have a lot of fun together. Barbie is a good friend to Natalia, and they share everything with each other. Barbie is a bit of a tomboy and loves sports, toads, and baseball caps. She is never afraid to get her hands dirty, and gets along with the boys in her class really well. Even though she has a tough exterior, she still loves to eat ice cream with rainbow sprinkles and her favorite color is pink.

Selena

Natalia's Other Best Friend
Selena is Natalia's other best friend and is friendly and altruistic person. She loves helping people and sharing her knowledge and skills with her friends. She is family- oriented and spends a lot of time cooking Mexican food with them on the weekends and major holidays. Selena is proud of her heritage and knows a little bit of Spanish that she sometimes teaches her friends. Selena works hard at school, but math isn't her strongest subject. She would rather be playing soccer with Natalia or reading a book. She loves planning sleepovers with Natalia and Barbie whenever their parents let them!

Blue Owl

Natalia's Moral Compass
The Blue Owl stands as the voice of “good” within Natalia’s moral compass.  Often providing tokens of reason, the Blue Owl will always encourage Natalia to go about things using kindness and fairness. The Blue Owl believes in the golden rule “treat others how you want to be treated” and lives strictly by it. The Blue Owl encourages Natalia to use her words, and believes this is the most effective way in finding common ground with someone else.

Red Owl

Natalia's Moral Compass
The Red Owl stands as the “challenger” within Natalia’s moral compass. Usually acting quickly and abruptly based on emotions, the Red Owl believes that confrontation is the best method when dealing with a problem. The Red Owl also believes in getting revenge and justice for just about everything, and usually holds a grudge of anger against others.  The Red Owl encourages Natalia to be tough, strong, and look out for just herself – not wasting time on worrying about the consequences or other people’s feelings.

Ms. Sanders

Natalia's Teacher
All of her students love Ms. Sanders. She is sweet, trendy, and relatable. She makes sure the kids have fun while learning. She's always willing to lend an ear or a shoulder when one of her students has something on her mind. Ms. Sanders is a BC graduate, and is very intelligent. She has lived in Boston her whole life, and got into teaching when she started mentoring in the Big Brother, Big Sister program. Ms. Sanders writes limericks and other poems in her spare time, which she sometimes shares with the students when they've been particularly good. She plays raquetball on weekends and is the reigning champion at the Young Professionals' Women's Racquetball League of South Boston. She is generous to a fault, and would do anything for those around her. She is also a good baker, and her famous brownies are a hit at every school bake sale.
