131: Kayla Lyons - How to create a big, authentic, faith-filled career (even if you feel unqualified‪)‬ Answer the Call with Kelsey Kemp

    • Christianity

Kayla remembers that day she was told, "You lack the qualifications for a career in journalism, therefore I cannot help or endorse you in the pursuit of media internships." by the dean of the journalism department at her university. Boy did she swiftly prove him wrong!

Kayla quickly paved her own way, cold calling news stations, until she landed internships that turned into a full time offer for a journalist position, that was immediately promoted into an offer to be an anchor after her boss saw her talent displayed through Kayla's YouTube channel.

She has gone on to become the recipient of the National Broadcasting+Cable’s Best Digital Multiplatform award, and was recognized by the Texas African American Museum as a Notable Woman of 2020. Kayla is also the FIRST full time African American Digital News Anchor in the United States.

Her drive to elevate her community led her to start her own digital marketing company where she currently serves as a Social Media Content Strategist, helping small to medium businesses optimize their digital footprint. Kayla's life goal is to walk out what it means to live an authentic, faith-filled life, and inspire others to do the same.

She graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Marketing and Full Sail University with a Masters in Entertainment Business Management.
