Even though David is younger he feels like he is Melissa’s big brother.

Personality wise, David and Melissa are very similar. “When we are upset we talk alike. Which I hate to admit, when certain emotions are brought out of us. We both keep to ourselves,” shared Melissa. They are both good writers But David also likes to draw.
