Kayla believes that every experience offers a lesson, no matter how simple. Her experiences teaching young children have shown her that creativity knows no bounds, and it is a lesson she wishes everyone could hang onto. Her goal is to find those who’ve lost their sense of wonder and guide them to rediscovering it. To Kayla, reading is a way of discovering the world, and writing a way of making sense of it all. Her writing journey began with a simple word of encouragement and she continues to progress further than she’d ever imagined. This love of the written word is something she would like to share.
Their words trained me to stay quiet, to blend in, to make it through the day. If I didn’t speak up, if I didn’t intervene, if I didn’t participate, no one would make fun of me. I became who they said I was, not who I wanted to be.
