Kaylee is a high school student from Johnson City, Tennessee. She is a very happy, social, and active person who asks to be treated just like everybody else. Kaylee was born with cerebral palsy.

At school, Kaylee is a cheerleader in the "sparkle" squad, and practices with the squad every week. They cheer at pep rallies and some of the school's basketball games. Kaylee has been involved in the Girl Scouts since she was in the first grade. As part of the troop, Kaylee attends the local Christmas parade every year and volunteers with the Juvenile Diabetes walk and the Appalachian Service Project (ASP), which are two local charities. Kaylee and her family say she is beautiful, happy, loving, headstrong, and sweet.
