The things she believes
When her modeling career was at its peak, Kyla found the fashion industry to be quite a challenging environment to thrive in while upholding her self-esteem. In the midst of her struggles, Kyla met her life mentor and learned that
"The biggest stage is none other than your life."
It is not about changing your physical appearance, but it is about making a change in your daily life. Many models are beautiful on the outside and are the object of
envy by many people as they walk across the stage, but they are not necessarily the happiest people in their daily lives-- and Kyla was one of them.
Having faith in God was the greatest break-through in Kyla’s life. Through sharing the gospel, she desires to encourage young people to find their value and help
them to find their true, unique beauty by inspiring them to make internal changes, not only external changes.
Being a “model” means being a “good example.” Being a “model” is not just connected to one’s physical appearance, but can apply to many different areas of
life. In essence, everyone can become a “model” if they shine their light of God in their everyday life.
