Kylie F. is a 12th grader this year and will graduate in May, 2020.
She is starring in the Woodland Opera House Nutcracker this Christmas. She has taken ballet for many years. She excels at everything she does. Her story is quite remarkable!
Kylie suffers from a disease called Tuberous Sclerosis. This is a rare disease that causes tumors, or growths, in the brain and other organs. Kylie has over 30 tumors in her brain. Because of these, she suffers from anxiety.
In 1st grade she was in public school. She could only read 15/100 of her sight word list and was held back. She also had speech therapy. Kylie reenrolled with South Sutter in 2015. Kylie has grown into an amazing young lady. She excels at EVERYTHING she does. I call her an academic "machine." She has taken courses at Woodland Community College since she was a freshman in high school. She will graduate in May, 2020.
