Jayla is 7 years old and she has 4C type curls, which we at Curlee Girlee refer to as Boomerangy curls. She likes to wear her hair down and free. She calls her curls her “crazy hair” and she loves them!

Jayla is currently in the second grade and is a student in the GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program at school. This is a very high honor given to gifted children so they can have an enriched and accelerated learning experience and achieve their highest academic potential.

Jayla is more than just intelligent, she is skilled in athletics too! Jayla also loves being an athlete and enjoys playing three different sports: soccer, softball, and basketball. Jayla has many talents and skills, and she is an inspiration to curlee girlees everywhere!
