“I was determined to not fail, so I had to do what I had to do, and I got it done. I used my syllabus to plan out my studies, and I always made sure I was prepared for class no matter what extracurriculars I was involved in. School always came first,” Kayla said. 

Kyla on the other hand said that although the advanced college prep classes in her senior year were challenging, they gave her the experience and skills she will need to succeed when she moves to Baton Rouge in less than three months.

Kyla was a semifinalist for the Gates Scholarship and was a member of the AP Pathways program in 10th grade. She was also a Peer Tutor for the Bard Ambassador Program and an active member of the National Honor Society.

Kayla plans to attend Yale University where she wants to double major in Political Science and Sociology, and eventually go to Yale Law School while Kyla wants to attend Louisiana State University where she wants to major in Kinesiology to prepare for a career in an athletic trainer in the National Football League.

Kayla said she initially wanted to see how much money she could earn in scholarships, but she applied to Yale because she knew a lot of successful people had graduated from Ivy League schools.

”I have to admit, I was quite surprised when I got the acceptance email because it’s so competitive. I wanted to go out of state for college, I love the location, and I couldn’t pass up the amazing financial award package they gave me,” Kayla said.

She stated that her package which includes full tuition, room and board, and other personal expenses makes her happy because she would be debt-free. Kyla said she is a big sports fan, and she chose Louisiana University for a reason.

Kyla said she chose Louisiana University over many other schools because it offers a strong kinesiology program and a rich sports heritage and both are important in helping her reach her career goal of being an athletic trainer in professional sports.
