You know those characters who just made such an impression on you that they never truly leave your brain? Maybe you don’t but I do. When I was younger, I grew up watching Disney Channel and Nickelodeon TV shows. There are certain characters that have been engrained in my brain since I was a child. That’s what we’ll be discussing today. I want to talk about those characters who raised me and shaped my personality into what it is today. Let’s get started.

Here are 6 female TV characters who shaped me into the person I am today.

1. Alex Russo

Alex Russo (Selena Gomez) is a character from Wizards of Waverly Place which aired on Disney Channel for four seasons from 2007-2011 and spawned a TV movie. I won’t go into too much detail about the show but it’s my favorite Disney Channel show of all-time.

I feel like out of all the characters on this list, Alex is the one who shaped my personality the most. You’ll find that most of these characters have one trait in common: sarcasm. I consider myself to be a naturally sarcastic person but Alex is really the character who brought out even more of it for me.

If you watched WOWP, you know how sarcastic she is. I relate to her love for art. In the later seasons, we see her passion for art grow more. Towards the end of the series, we see how she’s actually a good person and that she has a big heart. She cares about her family and friends even though she initially comes off as selfish. I care about my family and friends but I definitely wouldn’t describe myself as selfish.

2. Sam Puckett

Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) is a character from iCarly which aired on Nickelodeon for six seasons from 2007-2012 and spawned a reboot which airs on Paramount Plus. I still can’t fathom what Jennette went through during her time on the show which she covers in her memoir, I’m Glad My Mom Died

Nonetheless, I had to put Sam Puckett on this list because I relate to her a lot. She’s sarcastic, tomboyish, and isn’t afraid to tell things like they are which I admire because at that time female characters weren’t exactly written to be independent.

3. Raven Baxter

Raven Baxter is a character from That’s So Raven which aired on Disney Channel for four seasons from 2003-2007 and spawned a reboot called Raven’s Home which currently airs on Disney Channel. I included this show as one of my favorite Disney Channel TV shows from the 2000s aka the best era for Disney Channel in my opinion.

Raven can be bossy which is something I relate to because I’m a leo. Leos tend to be bossy and like to be in charge. She’s also not afraid to stand up for what’s right and tell it like it is which I admire and somewhat relate to.

4. Jade West

Jade West is a character from Victorious which aired on Nickelodeon for four season from 2010-2013.

Jade is pretty similar to Sam Puckett as far as sarcasm and strength goes. The only difference is that Jade’s toughness comes out of her mouth while Sam is more physical. I relate to Jade’s bluntness a lot. She’s not afraid at all to say what’s on her mind.

5. Lilly Truscott

Lilly Truscott is a character from Hannah Montana which aired on Disney Channel for four seasons from 2006-2011.

Lilly is the true definition of a tomboy. She loves sports and wears clothes that aren’t girly at all. I used to play basketball when I was in middle school so I relate to her love of sports just a little bit. I do consider myself somewhat of a tomboy because I hate wearing girly pieces of clothing like skirts and dresses.

I relate to her stubbornness and her loyalty. She’s always there for her friends. I’m a very loyal person. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a leo or it’s just because it’s in my DNA.

6. Maddie Fitzpatrick

Maddie Fitzpatrick is a character from The Suite Life of Zack & Cody which aired on Disney Channel for three seasons from 2005-2008 and spawned a spinoff series called The Suite Life on Deck

I feel like Maddie and I are almost the same person. She’s smart, sarcastic, caring, and hard-working. I would describe myself as all of these traits. I was always the goody-two-shoes in school and tended to follow the rules.
