Kayla Bold

My name is Kayla, I am 25 years young and I’m thru-hiking the AT in 2020. I've suffered from depression since I was in middle school. Writing and the great outdoors have become the best ways for me to feel better and get some relief. I have 2 German Shepherd dogs, Willow and Kenai (Kenai is actually my parents but I call him mine sometimes). I work as a hostess and food runner at a restaurant. I love chocolate ice cream and thin mints (I keep a couple boxes in my freezer to snack on throughout the year, don't judge).
