Voula was Stephanie's best friend and she offered to help Stephanie run for school president. However, Voula was shocked when Stephanie offered to kiss any boy who voted for her and then later thanked Joey Jeremiah instead of her for helping. Voula called Stephanie a "selfish baby" and ended their friendship, removing and throwing down a bracelet Steph had given her earlier that day.
Voula tried to get her overprotective father to let her go to a dance at school, he accepted, though she said she had to go to a meeting and he gave her a curfew of 9:30. She was caught when Lucy made her give the drunken Stephanie's speech at the dance.
Voula refused to forgive Stephanie for quite some time but she felt sorry for Stephanie and became her friend once again after Stephanie's disastrous date with Wheels.
Voula was later caught shoplifting with her friend Lucy Fernandez and they, too, had a falling out. Voula wanted to understand why Lucy was shoplifting and gave her another chance. The two were friends through the time Voula moved out to the suburbs, which she did at the end of 1987.
