Personal History Zhara was born on January 5, 2373 on Carpathia, a planet that produced spices and rich fabrics to export to other worlds. Her father was a spice merchant and her mother a weaver of tapestries. At an early age, Zhara learned to weave and embroider fine tapestries and clothing to sell in her mother's store.

Her parents hoped she would follow in their footsteps, but Zhara also loved to read. She spent much of her free time reading books about strange worlds and fantastic adventures. She especially loved the histories and folktales.

When she turned 15 and finished school, she took a job on a merchant ship so she could explore the galaxy and learn more about the other cultures she'd read so much about.

After two years of traveling, she stopped on Betazed, the home of her father's people, and decided to stay for a while. She enrolled in a university where she studied science, history and literature. She also learned how to use and control her telepathy, something she had grown adept at with her parents, but had never used with others outside her own family.

While at university she would often spend time listening to her fellow students and their problems and do what she could to help them. After the first year, she began to take classes in counseling so that she could more effectively help them.

By the time she was done with her schooling, she was qualified to work in science, counseling and computers. She had also grown in her telepathic and empathic abilities to where her teacher felt she had learned as much as she needed.

Zhara booked passage on a science vessel so she could continue traveling. This time, she fell in love with exploring itself. At the first opportunity, she took her entrance exam to Starfleet and passed, but not getting in until nearly a year later.

During this time she was allowed to work on the starship, the USS Tesla, as a cadet in both science and counseling.
