When Kelsey Carroll gets mad, she says, "I don't think. I just do." She's a self-proclaimed "bitch" who says she's into safety pins, piercings, and tattoos (she has at least five). Life isn't "Barbies and glitter." The reaction of one of the teachers at her high school: "I don't want that kid in my class." Kelsey's struggles with her ADHD, her anger, and graduating high school—after five years—are the subject of a new documentary, "Who Cares About Kelsey?"
A wonderful blog by Dublin High School Class of 2007 and UC Santa Barbara Class of 2012 graduate Kelsey Finnegan. Kelsey writes about her experiences working on development projects at the Happy Kids orphanage in Ghana and in support of genocide victims in Rwanda.
"Hello! My name is Kelsey, and I'm the first in my family to graduate from college! I'm 25 years old. I went straight after high school then had to stop because my mom became ill with cancer... I went back a little before she died. I am finally finishing this May from CSUDH with a major in Psychology and continuing to grad school. I got it all done and made honor roll all while raising my teenage brothers on my own and running a house hold! ✊ Proud Mexicana! " #LatinxGradCaps
"Who Cares About Kelsey" short trailer. Documentary about kids with emotional/behavioral disorders. Kelsey has ADHD, anger issues, and a history of self-mutilation, sexual abuse, homelessness; parents have substance abuse issues. School helps her deal with it all.
Kelsey has just graduated from high school and is on the prowl to find a summer job, something that will give her experience so that when the new school year rolls around she can find an even better one to help pay for her tuition. The only place hiring though is a traveling circus and they need her help for various tasks. One of which involves a tiger.
