Tyla, a 17-year-old, 4-month-pregnant, once homeless young woman from Los Angeles, Calif., is known by her family and friends as a “little big bully”. She's been expelled from multiple schools beginning in the eighth grade. Her father was killed before she was born, and her mother once called her a “mistake”. As a child, she lived with her mom but finally decided that she wanted to live on her own and has been doing so for the past year, moving from place to place. Tyla would like to be a brain or heart surgeon; she even gave high school another chance, but later learned that her school was going to be shut down.
