About Me

kayla blogs nyc

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Kayla and I’m a senior at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where I’m a speech, language, and hearing science major and a psych minor.

I enjoy

  • shopping for school supplies (especially planners)
  • reading
  • playing guitar
  • listening to all types of music
  • blogging
  • going out for brunch

I started this blog on a whim in the summer of 2014. I was bored and I really wanted to share my advice and experiences with other college students. At the time, I had no idea how far this “blogging thing” would go and I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised and excited.

Kayla Blogs is about me writing about what I love. Right now that is college tips + tricks, books/reading, music, and blogging. I plan to grow with this blog and take it with me wherever life goes. I hope you’ll enjoy coming along for the ride!


Who’s Ryan?

Ryan is my boyfriend and we’ve been together for 4 years! He guest posts on the blog at least once a month and we love to go on a lot of adventures together. Here’s the story of how we met in my words and in his words!

Why did you decide to major in speech-language pathology?

My mom is in the medical field and she suggested it to me one day. The story honestly isn’t much more complicated than that! I shadowed an elementary school SLP in my junior year of high school and I was hooked. I loved (and still love!) learning about the profession and can’t wait to see where this career path takes me. I also wrote a whole post about my major and why I love it!

What clubs and activities are you involved in?

I’m a brother of Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity, President of the National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association, a volunteer with the Philadelphia Aphasia Center at Temple, a student research volunteer at the Eleanor M. Saffran Center for Cognitive Neuroscience Aphasia Rehabilitation Research Laboratory, and a Big Sister through Big Brothers Big Sisters. During my freshman and sophomore years, I was also a corps member with Jumpstart Philadelphia at Temple University.
