Kayla Louw is a vibrant, bubbly and confident 18 year old young lady that is determined to reach her dreams and aspirations.
Prior to Sparrow Combined Technical School, Kayla briefly attended Blairgowrie Primary School and then moved onto homeschooling for two years. Her decision to be homeschooled was due to her having no interest in school because of the environment she was in.
Although, the decision to be homeschooled seemed sensible at the time, she started to become despondent. As a result, she was demotivated and stopped swimming with her swimming team, this coming as a shock to her as well as her friends and family as swimming was her outlet that kept her motivated. Kayla became extremely lonely due to the lack of social interaction while being homeschooled.
Regardless of these challenges, Kayla was determined to continue her education and decided to find a school that would be able to assist and accept her in the middle of a school term. Kayla then heard about Sparrow Combined Technical School and was certain it would be the best fit for her.
Kayla has always been a headstrong and focused student, but as her Grade 9 year started coming to an end she became anxious on what the following years held in store for her. However, because of her work ethic and her focus on academics, she was accepted by Sparrow FET College to study Information Technology: End User Computing at Sparrow FET College in 2018. She was grateful knowing she had direction moving into 2018.
Kayla’s future dream is to become a pilot. She has endless potential and despite her challenges and mental obstacles she has faced, she continues to be determined and a role model in her community to help empower and guide young women around her.
