Kaitlyn makes friends everywhere she goes, and Special Olympics is no exception. She’s been part of the organization for most of her life—starting at age 2! Today, she competes in unified bocce, basketball and summer sports, including the 50 and 100 meter dashes, shot put, javelin and softball throw.
Kaitlyn stays busy in school with everything from choir to the executive boards of Special Olympics and Best Buddies. Outside of school, she volunteers at the Children’s Hospital, works at Goodwill and participates in ballet, modern dance and theater arts classes.
Kaitlyn’s words to live by:
“Do what your heart tells you.”
Along with #AerieREAL Role Models, Aly Raisman and Iskra, we were so excited to welcome Kaitlyn and 6 other Special Olympics athletes to our photo studio for a full day of #AerieREAL in honor of Global Week of Inclusion.
