Kelie Roy, 23, will be getting her UNC cap and gown in just three months. But she won’t be the only one wearing a party hat that month — her son will also be celebrating his fourth birthday.
Philosophy major Roy was 20 years old when she found out she was pregnant.
Three years prior to her pregnancy, Roy was in high school. She was suspended for possession of drugs and was diagnosed with PTSD from sexual assault.
She switched high schools, hoping to get a fresh start, but then ended up eating lunch in the school bathroom.
