About Me:
Hi everyone! I had such a wonderful experience meeting many of you at the NAAF Conference in Houston, TX last year!

My name is Kayla and I am Miss Delaware 2010! I have had AA for eleven years now and have tried to turn it into a positive thing by promoting Alopecia as my platform. I will represent the National Alopecia Areata Foundation at the 2011 Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada!!!
I speak at schools about self esteem and try to raise awareness about Alopecia in our wonderful state.

I had never worn a wig until this year- OnRite offered to sponsor a wig for me to compete in Miss Delaware. I had so much fun trying on wigs, and finding the perfect one for me! I now model for OnRite and have had nothing but positive experiences with their wigs. I also have Hashimotos Thyroid Disorder which probably played a part in my Alopecia.

I am lucky enough to have amazing and supportive friends and family and a very caring boyfriend.

I'd like to meet new people with Alopecia, especially those in my area! Feel free to contact me :)

I enjoy speaking at conferences, classrooms, events, school assemblies, and support groups about Alopecia, self esteem, drug prevention, overcoming adversity and positive self image. Please contact me if you ever need a visiting speaker!

“Love yourself — accept yourself — forgive yourself — and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.”

I really love this quote and think everyone should follow this mantra!

I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday full of love and laughter!

Committee needed for event in Delaware!

Posted on September 23, 2008 at 1:30pm 4 Comments

Hi everyone!

After attending the NAAF conference I was completely energized and excited to host an event for AA in Delaware... Finally!! I am thinking of holding a 5k run/walk at the Community Service Center that I now work for in Clayton, DE. It is absolutely beautiful with a river, and trees surrounding the walking trail.

I am wondering if there is anyone in the tri-state area or within reasonable distance that would be interested in being on the committee of this event.… Continue

Hallo Kayla,
I read about you and saw your videos. I think , it is very good, you are speaking about alopecia. Maybe, it will help to invest more money for scientific research of this problems.
We live in high-developies countries.
The doctors can make so difficult operations now , they help people , who has large problems with heart , they help people , who has cancer.
But doctors can NOT help a lot of pacients , who has no hair!
I think, the scientiests must investigate more this disaster, and it will be possible to help more people who has alopecia.

I Googled the video once I learned you went on stage without wig at the crowning. Good for you! I had hoped to hear your speech...can you put it online for us here at AW? I know it would inspire many.

Kayla that was amazing! I’ve never watched a Miss America pageant all the way through before. It’s kind of exciting when you’re rooting for someone, and you did outstanding. Thanks for representing us Alopecia’s. I can’t believe you have the guts at such a young age to get up and do that. I was nervous and I was sitting on my couch eating Doritos.
