This also meant that Giddish carried out her parent’s teachings very well and started applying them early in life. Like every parent, Giddish’s parents also wished their daughter to pursue proper education.
And so Kelli did. Kelli went to a nearby local high school where she immediately established herself as a very obedient student who never gave teachers any chance to complain about her character as a student. Giddish always obeyed her teachers and did her school works with every ounce of sincerity.
During her time in high school, studies are not the only thing that Kelli excelled in as she managed to join the school softball team and also introduced herself as an athlete. Young Kelli used every chance she got to play softball and also won a couple of games during her high school life.
