Kaylee Wright had a rocky start to her college career. After dropping out of college to travel South America and surviving an abusive marriage, her life experience had transcended her education. She returned to school, but it wasn’t until her last semester at Paradise Valley Community College that she decided to really dedicate herself to school. She changed her mindset.
Wright decided to put herself out there and fell in love with the people, students and faculty at PVCC. With the help of her faith and determination, she finished her last semester with a new purpose and outlook on life. When Wright felt discouraged, she would bring herself up by embodying her favorite Bible passage; to "trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding, seek Him in all of your ways and He will make your paths straight.” - Proverbs 3:5-6.
She wants to continue her education in psychology with an emphasis on trauma and eventually pursue her master’s in leadership. Wright wants to help others who have experienced domestic violence by becoming a motivational speaker and advocate.
