How do you go from homeless to being a Gates Millenium Scholar? What do you do to pull yourself out of poverty to create a better life for yourself? How do you face the world as a bi-racial woman? In our conversation with Kayla, we learn that the key is you believe in something greater, deeper, and more powerful than you. Kayla Storrs is a Gates Millennium Scholar, higher education professional, full-time doctoral student, serves as an adjunct professor, and entrepreneur. In all of her work, she supports the exact populations of students that reflect her background from growing up--literally living out her purpose and aligning herself perfectly with her identity and experiences.
