Introduce yourself! Who are you?
My name is Kayla Gil, a fourth-year online public relations student at the University of Florida. I currently live near Charlotte, North Carolina with my boyfriend and two puppies!

 

What is one thing no one really knows about you?
One thing no one really knows about me would probably be that I am actually very insecure about myself and my work. I am working on that though and I have my lovely boyfriend who supports me and reminds me that I am great!

 
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
The best advice I've heard is to stop thinking about what others think. Stop comparing yourself, and stop lowering your standards for others!
 
What would you say to 16-year-old you?
Don't give up on your art!
 
What is your greatest fear?
Failure! I also have a fear of the dark even though I'm 23. 😂
 

Have you ever had anyone doubt you? How did that make you feel?
I think this is something that happens to everyone at some point. It made me feel terrible about myself! The best thing you could do is just try and prove them wrong.

 
What message do you think every woman should hear?
YOU! ARE! AMAZING! Don't ever doubt yourself! You are talented, beautiful, and don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise!
 
What is your favorite thing about where you live?
My favorite thing about living in North Carolina, first of all, is all of the coffee shops! There's something about North Carolina though that is just so relaxing and inspiring. The people I've met here are amazing and so genuinely kind.
 
What do you love most about yourself?
The thing I love most about myself is my kindness. I try to do something kind every day. It can absolutely change someone's day for the better. 
 
What is the biggest thing you’ve learned along the way?
Being patient is something that I've learned recently. Big things take time.
 
Why do you love to travel?
Traveling is the most inspiring thing you could do! I love to go on adventures and learn new things about where I am traveling to. I love discovering new places, new friends, and new food!
 
What motivates you most?
My future. 
 
What is your favorite meal?
Does iced coffee count? Just kidding! (not really) 
 
If you weren’t doing the job you have now, what would you be doing?
Honestly, I would probably be stuck in retail! Or maybe a starving artist. Although I guess you could say I am a starving artist/blogger/content creator at the moment.
 
What is something on your bucket list?
I would really love to go on a mission trip one day. To travel the world and help those in need would be so amazing.
 
What are your biggest passions?
My biggest passions include content creating, social media, art, graphic design, and coffee!
