Kayley has had a difficult upbringing, having to experience DHS foster care procedures and being away from her three siblings for months at a time due to her parents’ struggle with drug addiction.
Although she never felt like she was fortunate enough to be “given opportunities to do well”, her teachers saw her “true potential” and encouraged her to apply for Skyline.
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.
Inspired by her high achieving peers and her older sister Tahlia, she is driven to receive high academic results.
