Cynthia wants to be world renowned for her critiques on art. During World War II, Cynthia lived with her mother in London. She read as many books as possible during those long years focusing on Opera and Theatre. Cynthia moved to New York City in early 1946 to study Art History at Columbia. She rose to prominence in the city's elite due to her selective company and for regularly disappearing on secretive, fanciful trips. In April of 1948, she is about to graduate from Columbia and plans to return home to London until she gains full control of the money her father left for her after his death.
