Extracts from this document...


Jess Burke You wouldn't understand People want to know, I guess, what turns a cute young girl like me into something that I am today. The truth? Why I did it? It's because I like it. I don't expect people to understand what it's like. They have no idea. To hold someone's life in your hands. To be in control.
