About Vanessa: Vanessa is an aspiring filmmaker. Her childhood best friend is Dan Humphrey. She once lived in Vermont with her parents until they've decided to allow her to live with her sister in Brooklyn to finish high school. She had a huge crush on Dan. The two were almost an item before Vanessa decided to move away to Vermont to live with her parents. A year later, she returns and tries to rekindle the old flames.
