What we like about Kylie: She is passionate about issues relating to social and economic justice.
Kylie says: “I believe it’s important to lift the voices of the systemically unheard – which is what I intend to do working in Charlotte’s West End. I’m a descendant of Durham’s West End, which is going through the same things that Black neighborhoods across the country are experiencing.”
When she’s not working: “I enjoy playing video games, reading, running, watching documentaries and cartoons, exploring nature, film photography and painting. I’ve always loved writing recreationally, whether it be making up my own short stories in grade school, keeping a daily journal or writing poems.”
