The Hilltopper

Kayla Wilson
Writing has always been a part of Kayla Wilson’s life. While most kids were coloring with crayons in coloring books, she was scribbling lines in a spiral notebook with a number 2 pencil. Squiggly lines morphed into childish sentences, four or five words long, and then into sentences that used commas and semicolons, filling up one journal, then two, then three.

Kayla’s parents suggested that she take journalism in 8th grade, and soon, asking questions and writing down what she was thinking became as natural as eating. She is a fourth-year journalism student and is the feature editor of the Hilltopper newspaper. She knows that writing, whether it be for a magazine, a newspaper, a blog or even a journal, can have a huge impact on a person’s life.

Being a feminist is another huge part of who Kayla is. She marched in the Women's March and when she is not fighting for women’s rights, you can find her reading. She is currently trying to work her way through a massive to-read list. She is a firm believer that the book is always better than the movie, although she has found a few exceptions.
