She is resigned, but already have personal thoughts and pursues. She is a middle-class worker, with no actual family and no prospects, at the beginning, of improvement. But, because of her personality, she manages to transform her life in many ways. If she were a "kind" child, by the eyes of Mrs. Reed, she would never go to Lockwood school; she were able to grow up in terms of knowledge in the school, because she had the need of being liked by others and was strong enough to improve herself in many ways; she, by herself, took a chance when announcing to be a governess.

I know I wouldn't, but maybe now I'll try something wild and see how people react. How many people that you know make jokes about things that are unfortunate and are about the downside of life?
Monica herself is accepting of her tomboyish and yet she is aware that even at her young age, she knows the other boys will not. She loses her temper rather quickly and that not only gets in the way in basketball but relationships as well. Her mother constantly criticizes her general demeanor causing a constant tension between them. Her attitude is not particularly appealing to the boys of her age either. Going into high school, Quincy’s general outlook of women is still fairly superficial.
