People often ask me what kind of child Odessa is, and it's just so hard to say, not only is she changing all the time and going through different stages, but also her behaviour seems to not obey any rules. For example, if you saw her on the stage performing you might think she is a very confident girl, but at the same time she would be very shy talking to you. She is usually very calm and laid back, but sometimes little things drive her crazy. It's just impossible to put any label on her. What I do know is that she is at her best when she is with her friend Lelia. Everything I find beautiful about Odessa comes out straight away when she sees her little friend's face. You should see the smile she gives her - nobody else gets a smile like that. These two are so adorable together that tourists stop and take pictures of them like they were another London attraction. There is such a magical chemistry between them. I really hope it will last forever. I think close friendships are the best part of childhood.
