About Me - Layla King

self portrait


I have played multiple different sports. Previously, I’ve played basketball, and right now I play soccer, run track and play softball. Track and softball are relatively new to me, but I wanted to try something different. My main sport is soccer, I’ve played it the longest out of every other sport, and I enjoy it the most. Also, I have the most experience with it. I play on a travel team, and for the high school of my school district. I have a lot of great memories from soccer, and it’s given me a lot of great experiences and opportunities.

Traveling is one of the things that I really enjoy. I’ve visited many places inside and outside of the United States. I visited islands like Jamaica, Curacao, and St. Kitts while on a cruise for vacation. I also flew on a plane to places like Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Whenever I go somewhere like the places I mentioned, I try to get a visor from that place. It’s almost like a souvenir to represent all of the places I visit.

Future Plans

I don’t have my future completely planned out, but I do have a good understanding of what I want to do. After graduating high school, I want to go to college to at least get a bachelor's degree. As of now, I have a couple of colleges in mind like Howard or MIT, but I haven’t looked into them that much. In addition, I still want to play sports in college, so I want to go somewhere that offers the sports I play. When it comes to my life after college, I haven’t really thought about it. I want to have a good job by then, and maybe further on I could eventually have my own business.
