Biography[edit | edit source]

Prior to A New Direction[edit | edit source]

Vanessa was born on July 7th to Nash Anderson and Holly Cognac. Her mother was a freshman at the time of her birth and her father a senior, however they both decided to raise Vanessa as their own. Things didn't turn out that way as Nash was arrested for statutory rape and thrown in jail. Holly still decided to raise her daughter as her own while still going to school. Her mother, being a very stuck-up young woman, taught her daughter a few too many things through her temper and ignorance towards anyone who didn't agree to everything she said or did. To add to this, because she loved food, Vanessa was slightly chubby and bullied because of it. She tried everything but the weight wasn't going anywhere. After finding out through her health class about eating disorders, she decided that that was her way out. She soon stopped eating out of will power, and soon became thin and popular. In grade 8, she met Valerie and the two became best friends and the queen bees of McKinley. She believes now that she is just the way she wants to be: flawless.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Vanessa is the chocolate to Valerie's vanilla. She is a cruel cruel young girl. Unlike her best friend though, she has no soft side. She is a bitch through and through, no exceptions. With a fake glittery smile and perfect posture, she is the royal highness of the school. She despises those who are lesser than she is, literally posting a sign outside her door that read "No uggos or fatties allowed" when she had a house party. If you get on her bad side, watch out cause she will destroy you. She is only loyal to Valerie and would never do anything to her if she did something terrible, like wear anything from TJ Maxx. Anyone else is fair games. She has a lot in common with Valerie, one of those being that they both have an eating disorders. Since she used to have a weight problem, she does not want to get to that place again and refrains from eating more than 200 calories a day.
