Niece decided she will not return to school for her senior year.
Our niece informed my sister the day of high school registration that she will no longer attend her high school this fall. She is going to be 18 next month and decided she will be moving in with her boyfriend and will complete her education via an adult program in the Vo-Tech and pursue her modeling career. She has been featured in several store ads, 17 and a few other publications. She has also danced in a music video. She is a very voluptuous pretty young woman and has a 1yr modeling contract. She said she is tired of the drama, zero tolerence school rules, and feels tradtional school is holding her up. Her boyfriend is 21 and a master auto tech at a major dealership. He has his own home with a shop at home. My brother-in-law and my DH really like her boyfriend as they all share an interest in auto repair, etc. They are worried she is not as grounded as him being younger and used to a faster paced lifestyle she will move on and leave him in the dust. My sister is dissapointed there will be no traditional senior year, graduation, etc. I feel she will not be content to live in Wisconsin much longer and will be drawn to the west or east coast. My DH and my brother in law will have to realize they have more in commen with her boyfriend than she does. He has built a life and future for himself here she is still pursuing hers. He is just the man of the moment. Does anyone else have a situation where a young adult in their lives left high school to persue a real life dream or occupation?
