Andrea was born to Donna Elliot and Charles Keller. Her parents weren't a couple, seeing as Donna was a pink. When she was very young her father took Andrea with him from Libèl to the big city in Novas to get the babe away from her mother for a reason Andrea is yet to find out, she doesn't know anything about her mother to this day. At a young age, Andrea became interested in technology and computers, because of her fathers common interest in mechanics and modern devices. Andrea spent almost all her sparetime outside of school putting technological devices such as vehicles, computers and other machines apart, and building them back together. As a young girl Andrea also loved to sing (Yes she wasn't born deaf). Music was something she loved and whilst tearing apart vehicles and building them together she'd sing songs, both made by herself and pop songs.
At the age of 15 Andrea had quite the band of friends, a plan for the future. As a green she was destined to work with technology, and her plan was to develop prosthetics. By doing that she could help other people, which was something that burned in her heart. However in the middle of the school year, she was so unlucky to get meningitis. She was treated fast, but being one of the very few, she acquired a hearingloss in both her ears. The damage was brutal and she became completely deaf in her right ear, and only partly deaf in her left. She could still hear high tones and bass sounds, but no speech. It was a tremendous change, extreme for a stressed teenager. The doctors told her that it still didn't exist a way for her to hear like before, but Andrea was offered a hearing aid.
For months the girl was angry, she could never listen to music again, converse with other people like before nor hear if anyone walked in on her. She had spent months only being home in their apartment on the computer programming or putting small electronic devices apart only to rebuild them into something else. Her father both hated and loved to see her like this. She developed more skills within technology, but at the same time she didn't socialize at all. Andrea's father decided that the two should learn sign language, so that she could talk to others like her, and so they did. It didn't take much time due the need to communicate and this all motivated Andrea to go back to school. Nothing was like before, but she managed. Throughout the years she developed her technique in coding, understanding of the technology and how it all worked together. And finally at the age of 26 she had passed all her exams. As it seems, you do not need your hearing when coding programs or building robotics in a lab alone.
For her final project at school she had developed a lens, within biotechnology, that could help her read lips. The lens together with an implant in her brain, would help her process the way people's lips moved. It helped her understand people easier, and also helped Andrea relax, as constantly focusing on the lips movements before was exhausting. Now she needn't think about it as much.
Now in the present, her next goal would be to develope a device that could help her restore her human hearing again. Andrea doesn't live far away from her father, and often makes a visit to see how he's doing. Her father Charles is her biggest hero, and one of the few she can talk to without any handicap.
