Only seventeen, but she walks the streets so mean
Despite the fact that she is extremely young, she has a swagger about her that suggests she is a lot older. The fact that she is this young links to Lolita.
This reveals that Carmen is effectively a child prostitute since she is so young — she’s not even allowed to have legal sex!
