In her free time, she likes spending time with her friends, finding good places to eat, journaling, and playing trumpet. She enjoys serving because of the relationships she gets to build with God and His people. When God met Kaylin and renewed her spirit after years of apathy and anxiety, He revealed His faithfulness even when she thought she was walking alone.
