I don't tend to think much about birthdays myself, but Lili's contemplation here reaonates. She is adventurous, not only in how she ended up on the Enterprise in the first place, but alsoin how she jumped into integrating into a whole new culture. Yet somehow, I don't know if she would describe herself as such. Maybe bravery is the word. Any which way, she manages that AND being grounded. Very real and realistic.
I wanted her, at this stage of her life, to almost be a future-era pioneer woman. I think a lot of people who are really sent out won't be going to unspoiled wilderness. I think it's a lot more likely that they would be integrating into a preexisting society. Food, money, culture - it would all be vastly different.
