The Girl Next Door
On his way home from work, Miguel Angel Meneses would have to pass by Sandra Nava’s apartment, where he would see her studying. Miguel and Sandra eventually fell in love, moved to their own apartment in Wyvernwood, and raised a family there.
“I enjoy living here because of all the green space,” says Sandra. “We looked elsewhere to live and we couldn’t find a place quite like it here. My kids can have a healthy lifestyle here, and I feel a sense of unity.”
Now eighteen, their son Miguel, Jr. attributes his interest in anthropology to having learned about different cultures from fellow residents. He plans to study anthropology at UCLA and move back to Wyvernwood after college.
“Everyone knows everyone here,” he says. “I feel safe here; people look out for each other. The people here are the most important thing to me.”
