Tyler and Gabby met three years ago, and Tyler noticed that his new friend was shy. His dad, Jason Boone then recounted that Tyler then asked Gabby’s mom what he could do to make her feel better.

Perhaps contributing to Gabby’s shyness is the fact that she has alopecia areata since she was 4 years old. She has generally worn headbands or hats because real hair wigs could be a bit expensive. Her mom, Emilia Ruiz tells BuzzFeed that “We’re very open and we leave it up to her. We want her to be comfortable.”
