During her time in public and private school, Christina was often severely bullied. Christina has high functioning autism, making her view the world through a different lens than that of her peers. Difficulties with her peers and relating to the world caused frustration and pain that lead to aggression both at school and home.
While working with BAYS she has come to better understanding her triggers, how to cope in these situations, and thrive in school. Next year she will start dual enrollment college classes and wants to be a Zoologist after she graduates.
