Hi y’all! I’m Kylie (she/her), and I’m a first year health and society major! I’m from Orange County, California #OOS !! 

In addition to being a social media ambassador for UT Admissions, I am also a Kappa Delta at UT! My favorite things to do are beach days, pilates classes, creating social media content, taking pictures on my film camera and, of course, getting sweet treats with friends!
