Fun Fact: Due to the seniorities in High School, Keyana actually plagiarized her senior essay in High School. She was in a Public Speaking in writing course, where she had to write speeches and recite them in front of the class.
When she was confronted by her then English teacher, he stated to her, “Keyana, I know that you plagiarized your senior essay, but I’m going to give you another chance to revise it, because you are one of the best public speakers in the class.”
Her ability to obtain this skill at a young age, is the only reason why she was able to graduate High School. This story is a true testimony of her gift.
