“I’m the main character the Bitch In The City story”
Hi, my name is Amelia Hawkins and I’m the main character of the Bitch In The City story..
After graduating from high school, I got my first job as a customer service officer in a bank. They were fun years because most of us were younger and the social life was great! Back then, I wanted to be a rock chick, or an actress, or something that would be fun.
When I was 22, I met Richard, who was a year younger than me. He’d dropped out of high school too, but had got himself together and was studying law.
Around that time I was feeling that my work had lost its sparkle, even though I still really enjoyed customers and socialising with my colleagues. After a few months I confided in Richard about how I was feeling. He encouraged me to think seriously about my career and suggested that I study something I found interesting.

I thought hard about what he’d said. I have to admit I’d been cruising along and having fun, but not really preparing for the future in the way I should’ve been. Eventually, I decided to bite the bullet and go to night school. Now, I have my Marketing degree and a career path ahead of me.
Richard and I have been married for three years now. We don’t have any children, but I’m only in my late 20’s so there’s plenty of time. Our focus is on working hard to get our careers well established and paying off the mortgage. I love a good laugh with friends over food and wine, but I don’t see my friends as often as I used to because work’s so busy (I’ve got to find time to fix that).
Recently, I landed a great job at Global Industries … it looks like all my hard work and study might actually pay off!
