The teen-specific aspirations are all part of the new teen aspiration category, with Relatable being the bonus trait for the category. The Relatable trait’s description reads as follows: “Relatable Sims build friendly relationships with fellow teens faster.”

The four aspirations include the Live Fast, Admired Icon, Goal Oriented, and Drama Llama. Each aspiration has a unique reward trait that will follow the Sim into adulthood. Although they did not mention what each unique reward trait would be, they stated that it would, “help you through the rest of your teen life as well as your adult life.”

The first aspiration is the Live Fast aspiration. The description for the aspiration is: “The Sim aims to get the most out of life by living care-free and rules-free.” Then, there’s the Admired Icon aspiration. The game describes the aspiration as: “This Sim wants to be a trend setter, popular, and influential, A true icon.” In comparison, the aspiration of Goal Oriented, is described as, “This Sim wants to be the best: Grades? check. Sports? Check. Money? Check! The road to success is being paved.” The final aspiration is the Drama Llama aspiration. The description reads as: “The Sim wants all the drama all the time.”

The following information is from LuniverSims and translated by MelinSimsLand. Note, the actual wording will be slightly different due to the translation. For each aspiration, there are three milestones that the teen needs to complete before Young Adulthood. These are some of the requirements for each milestone.

Drama Llama – Requirements for this aspiration include: Gossip 5 times, spread a rumor, kiss in the love ride, and have an enemy rival
