Kyla Overby

KIPP North Carolina Public Schools

Kyla, a KIPP Gaston College Prep Pride High School alumna, plans on double majoring in economics and business administration with a minor in entrepreneurship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She hopes to make both fields more inclusive as a Black female and eliminate the limitations currently placed against people of color with new visionary, eccentric thinking. She’s a founding member and manager of the Divine Step team, President of the National Honor Society, and a first-generation college student. Being raised in a rural area has shown her how pivotal it is to seize every opportunity and not settle for less, but it has also shown her how necessary it is to inspire those who follow in committing to turning their aspirations into reality.
