Bio:

Keiyara Vanhook is a senior at Coastal Carolina University, where she is pursuing a degree in public relations. Her goal every day is to make someone else’s day. Throughout her college career, she has worked for a student-run public relations agency and has been heavily trained in social media and social media marketing.

As a child, Keiyara was always extremely bubbly and concerned for those around her. Family life was difficult early on due to her father being incarcerated when she was just nine years old. But, she is grateful to have had a wonderful support system around her to keep her focused. Now, she strives to be a part of the support system of other struggling children whenever given the opportunity.
