She and her mother, Millie Rose, who works as a lunch lady at Marley's school, are poverty stricken.

Her best friend is Unique Adams. It is revealed briefly in the episode Shooting Star that she writes original songs and in the episodes "Sweet Dreams" and "All or Nothing", her songs are performed.
