|Cameron Donny Bennet|
|Birthday:||October 7, 1994|
|Occupation:||Student / Office Assistant @ UMB|
Cameron is a very tall guy and has been for a while. He was that kid who ended up getting a growth spurt when he was still young and was towering over all the other kids. Sometimes he was bullied for being the tall lanky guy, but as he got older, more of the other guys also got taller and he started getting more comfortable with his height. He also started working out more in order to not be a really skinny tall guy. Cameron still quite often works out whenever he gets the chance. He makes sure that he goes to the gym at least twice a week, although he prefers to go more often.
Cameron also likes to wear clothes that he's comfortable in. He'll often wear jeans and a t-shirt, but he'll also often wear sweatpants and a sweatshirt. He does dress a bit nicer for his job on campus since it is expected of him. He's also recently decided to try growing a bit of facial hair to see what it's like. He used to always keep his face clean shaven, but he decided to try something new and so far he likes it. He claims that it makes him look older.
Cameron is a very easy-going and laid back individual. He doesn't like to worry too much about things and prefers not to. He'll often end up ignoring problems until they get really bad and he has to pay attention to them. Cameron is also very dependent on others. He hates having to be on his own and often hopes for others to be around to help him out. He tried living on his own for a few months, but ended up hating it and convincing his friend to move in with him.
Cameron is also very charismatic and can make friends very easily. He can easily talk to just about anyone he meets. He really enjoys getting to know new people. Because of this, he has quite a lot of friends, although he's not exactly close with them. He only has a few very close friends that he trusts. He's also very trustworthy as people who are close to him know that they can tell him just about anything and he won't tell a soul.
Also, he can sometimes be very vain. He likes the way he looks and likes to make sure he looks good. He often works out in order to keep up his appearance. He's also very stubborn and it can be hard to get him to do anything he doesn't want to do.
Cameron Donny Bennet is the son of Donovan and Wilhelm Bennet. His dads married two years before his birth and decided that they wanted to have children of their own. At first, they were planning on adopting until Wilhelm's sister suggested they use a surrogate mother. That way their child would look like at least one of them. The two thought about it a bit more and decided they should go through with it. They went to a surrogate agency and were able to find someone to have their child. They both wanted their child to look somewhat like the two of them, so they decided to use Donovan's sperm and a white woman as the surrogate mother. Soon enough, they had their first child Cameron.
When Cameron was five years old, his dads decided they wanted a second child, but they decided not to go through with a surrogate mother again. It was so expensive that they decided that they couldn't currently afford it. Instead, they decided to go with adoption. After a year, they adopted a baby girl that they named Bethany Wilhelmina Bennet. Cameron was excited to have a little sister because he had been begging his dads to have another child so he could have a little brother or sister.
Growing up in the Bennet household was nice and happy for Cameron. His parents tried to be around for their children as much as possible and tried to keep things good. Even if they were going through hard times, they still did their best to make it seem as if everything was fine. Cameron and Bethany never suspected anything bad was happening in their lives. They had no idea about the homophobia that their dads faced at their workplaces or that they kept moving from town to town because their dads were sick and tired of the people they worked with. Cameron and Bethany never questioned any of it. Cameron was fine with moving a lot as he liked being able to meet new people at different schools. His sister mostly hated it because she kept having to make new friends every time.
Finally, the summer before his freshman year of high school, his dads decided they were going to no longer move. They wanted their kids to be able to stay in one place and focus on school. They moved to Barfield and rented a nice little house with three bedrooms and a nice backyard. Once Cameron began attending Barfield High School, he met Sara Ellison, Alice Wei, and Adelaide Taylor and they all became very good friends. Cameron knew he shouldn't get too close to them though because he believed his parents would decide to move again in a year or so. Even though they had told him that they weren't moving again, he didn't exactly believe them. In tenth grade, his friend Alice set him up with his other friend Sara. At first Cameron wasn't sure that he should be dating anyone, but he decided he might as well. He had only dated one other person before Sara, but it was one of those pointless eighth grade relationships that lasted a month.
During high school, Cameron made excellent grades and did very well in most of his classes. He always worked hard to do well and would sometimes skip hanging out with his friends to do his homework. He took a lot of AP classes and became an honors student. He was never valedictorian, but he had the fourth highest GPA in his class. He never cared much about that though and only wanted to be able to do well in school. His dads were both very proud of him for working so hard in school. He had previously been doing only decently due to the constant moving, but now that he was in one place he was able to do better.
Cameron applied to a few nearby colleges and once he was accepted to the University of Miduna Beach, he decided that it was the perfect option for him. It was only a short drive from home and also an excellent school. He started attending UMB as undecided, until his second semester when he decided to become an international affairs major. He had taken an into class his first semester and really enjoyed it. He's learned to speak French and Polish since he began attending UMB and is hoping to maybe one day learn another language, although he isn't sure what. Throughout college, he's continued to do well with his classes and excel at most of his classes. There's been a few that he didn't do as well in, but he's still happy with how everything is coming along.
Currently, Cameron is still dating Sara. Sometimes people seem surprised that they've been dating since tenth grade, but he's happy about it. Cameron is also currently working as an office assistant at UMB. He got the job this semester and had previously been working as a waiter in a restaurant in Barfield. He's glad to be able to do something else. He also moved out of his house about two years ago and currently shares an apartment with his college friend Samson Mitchell.
Donovan Bennet is Cameron's father, who he always called dad when growing up. Donovan is Cameron's biological father as his dads used his sperm for the surrogate mother. Cameron takes after his father a lot, or at least everyone says that he does. Cameron was also named after his father as his middle name is Donny, which is somewhat similar to the name Donovan. Cameron and his dad were very close when growing up and Donovan was always there for him. If Cameron had to pick a favorite parent, he would probably end up picking Donovan even though he claims he doesn't have a favorite.
Wilhelm Bennet is Cameron's father, who he called tata when growing up, which is the Polish word for dad. His father's parents were both from Poland, so Wilhelm figured it would be easier for the kids to call him tata rather than something else in English. Wilhelm was always very supportive of Cameron when he was growing up, and always helped him to do his best. He would help Cameron with his homework the best he could, although as Cameron got older and took harder classes, the less Wilhelm knew.
Bethany Bennet is Cameron's younger adopted sister. She's six years younger than him, but they're still close to each other. Cameron is sometimes protective over his sister even though he knows she hates when he is. He tries not to be so she won't get annoyed with him.
