Kayla is part of a big family. Both her parents work to make ends meet and provide better opportunities for their children. Although she is the middle child, she will be the first to graduate high school in her family. To help her family and provide a path for her siblings, Kayla took on a part-time job afterschool. Sadly many close relatives of Kayla have been diagnosed with cancer and this has inspired her to become a doctor. She is determined to go to college and get a degree in medicine.
