Bee Kyle Human Skyrocket

My great-great-great aunt was a high diver in the 1930s, diving into a small pool of water from 100 ft above. Born in Calais, Me. She spent her childhood in the US/Canada bordertown. Her diving career began in Montreal Canada.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I learned was how she lived her life as a high diver in show business, it wasn't all about glamour. She didn't have a lot but still made the best of it.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

To follow your dreams! Be brave.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Bee lived an adventurous life from a young age of 12. She had a lot of independence. I have been inspired to follow my dreams and not give up.
