Kayley has had a difficult home life, going through the DHS foster care procedures and being away from her three siblings for months at a time due to her parents’ struggle with drug addiction.
She never felt like she was fortunate enough to be “given opportunities to do well” but applied to the Skyline Program after her teachers told her they saw her true potential.
She is currently enrolled at Melton Secondary College and is interested in studying humanities during her VCE studies. She hopes to become more confident in herself and trusting in her abilities and knowledge.
She is inspired by her high achieving peers and her older sister Tahlia to continue receiving high academic results.
