Gillian Segall is an 18-year-old high school senior from Chicago, IL who happens to have PWS. We asked Gillian to tell us a bit about her life as a high school senior and her plans for afterward.
Graduating from high school is something that many kids and their parents take for granted. But I’m a kid with Prader-Willi Syndrome so my journey has been full of ups and downs. The “ups” have been amazing: I will be graduating in May, made my high school honor society, was named a “True Giant” for making my school a better place, and also qualified for state Special Olympics in swimming. But the “downs” have made it really hard to get here.
