Kayla attended New York University where she focused her studies on poverty and inequality with an interest in education and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Policy. During the months following graduation, Kayla traveled abroad to conduct research and volunteer at schools in other countries. She spent a month in Ghana, researching education policy at the Ministry of Education, while assisting, observing and interacting with students in several different schools throughout the country. Shortly after her return home, Kayla then traveled to Cambodia where she spent the next five months as a volunteer, working as a teacher’s assistant of English and Math, for a First Grade class. Kayla’s whole experience not only reinforced her desire to help students in a teaching capacity, but also expanded her vision to include working in education policy. While overseas, Kayla was also able to cross some places off her bucket list as she visited Australia, Bali, Thailand, and Tokyo on her way home. When she isn’t traveling, she enjoys bringing her puggle to the dog park, reading books and trying out new restaurants in pursuit of the perfect taco.
