Kayli HattleyPaulson Initiative Intern
Howdy, everyone ! *Tips hat in peaceful Southern hospitality*
My name is Kayli Hattley (she/her/hers) and I’m class of 2022 and a Biochemistry major at Wellesley. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas, which means I grew up going to the Rodeo, eating barbeque, and sipping sweet tea…by the gallon. When I’m not baking in the Texas heat or overusing the word y’all, I like to spend my time with my two younger sisters and my puppy papillon, Kirby. While at home, I’ve been using my time to practice my drumset and guitar skills and even teach my siblings some shredding skills so we can start a family band and go big like the Jonas brothers. Similarly, back on campus, I take lessons for drumset, African/ Haitian style drumming, and violin. I’m also a part of orgs such as Wellesley College Television (WCTV), do biology research, and I am a Posse Scholar. When I’m not jamming out to music or hanging out with friends, I spend most of my time at the Global Flora Greenhouse taking care of the fish (mostly talking to them and teaching cool fish tricks) in the Mangrove Tank or wearing scrubs and counting pills at CVS as a pharmacy technician. In reality, I’m an easy-going, fun-loving, joke-telling girl, who is passionate about science and learning. This summer with the Paulson Initiative internship, I hope to push myself out of my comfort zone and broaden my skill set. I especially want to learn what eco-literacy means and how I can better connect and appreciate the environment around me.
