tyla's Story

My passion is running.

Running has always been my escape from reality. Growing up, I have always been the fastest runner compared to all my friends. As a little girl, I often outran all of the girls and some of the boys. That I could beat many boys was amusing to many. Although I considered running my love, it was competitive racing that would emerge as my passion. The first time that I competed against other girls my age was four years ago. During that race, I placed fifth in the City against six graders. Ever since that day, I’ve taken running to another level. Currently as a high school sophomore, I know that running will be key to receiving a college scholarship. I feel fortunate that something I love so much will prove to be a key that opens the door to my future success.

A Note from Ms. Eversley, tyla's Mentor

Standing barely five feet tall, Tyla entered ninth grade at a school that is defined by a student population that's roughly 95 percent boys and five percent girls. While Tyla's small frame could have easily resulted in her having been overlooked, Tyla proved to be a force with which to be reckoned. She outpaced her male counterparts both academically and athletically. Her commitment to being excellent, served as her motivation to remain on top. In the process of outdoing herself, she focused on continuing to rise. Tyla consistently put in hard work on both fronts. Tyla's focus on her passion for both learning and running, has allowed her to continue to grow and evolve as both a student and an athlete.
