When I heard I'd received the Girls Inc. college scholarship, I was speechless. I knew my dream of becoming a computer engineer was achievable. - Diana, 17
For over 13 years, Girls Inc. has been an important part of Kyjeila’s life. At the age of six, she was introduced to daily arts activities at Girls Inc. of Metropolitan Dallas, giving her the skills and the confidence she needed to explore her creative side. As a young teen, Kyjeila began to focus on her passion and through Operation SMART, she discovered a keen understanding and love of science and math: a skill she later used to help other girls grasp difficult topics. Kyjeila credits Girls Inc. with introducing her to experiences that she otherwise would not have had access to, including attending NASA space camp, and presenting an entomology exhibit at the Texas Women’s Museum where she shared her love of science with people from across the state.
At Girls Inc., Kyjeila was driven to learn more about the types of careers that were available in the STEM fields, which inspired her to pursue a career in Biology.
