Haylie, 17 years old

Name: Haylie, 17 years old
Submitted by: Her sister
Location: Clifton Park, NY
What's going on?: My little sister is going through so much right now. She is in her last year of high school and trying to do her best with grades and staying on top of her school work, while working at her job to support herself already. My parents divorced when she was young and my mother just recently lost their house so she is bouncing back and forth between friends houses. She has had a very on and off relationship with our father which I know has devastated her. She never feels like she is good enough and I’d love for her to know that she is loved.
What do you love most about this girl?: She is the funniest and most caring girl I know! I may be biased because I’m her older sister, but she cares so much for her friends and family! Even though she struggles with anxiety, I’m so proud of how much she has come out of her shell this last year and continues to shine like the star I know she is!
Anything else you want to tell us? She is my best friend and I love her dearly! Any words of encouragement about her upcoming graduation from high school would also be fantastic as she’s currently on the fence about going to college or continuing to just work based off of everything going on.
