If I could get sober, anyone can get sober. I want to be the light that gives hope to those still suffering addiction.

As a member of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe, Kyle embraces a life experience that is severely underrepresented in media. At 41, she is the mother of 5 children. In 2021, Kyle graduated from Chief Dull Knife College with a A.A.S. in business management, and she has worked at the Northern Cheyenne Tribe at different capacities. “Having wasted 20 years in my addiction, I had countless missed opportunities ... the greatest of which was being the mother my children deserved, Kyle says.

“My first daughter was born when I was only 16, while in my junior year of high school. I did graduate and enrolled in our Tribal College, which gave me a sense of accomplishment, but I was in an abusive relationship with the father of my daughters and could not find my way out of my addiction. Because I grew up in an abusive, dysfunctional, and poor family, I used drugs as my coping mechanism, and soon it became the only thing that mattered in my life. I was in and out of jail and have had many criminal charges, warrants, and fines”, she says.

Kyle completely changed her life three years ago, with the support of Dress for Success. Today, she wants to be “a light that gives hope to those still suffering in addiction.”
