2016 Youth of the Year Finalist

Tyla Ross is a junior at her high school where she plays Varsity Volleyball and Softball, all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. Tyla understands the meaning of hard work and serves as a Mentor and Leader in the community and Boys & Girls Club of O’Donnell Heights.

Her leadership ability stems from a source within her home. As the oldest with two younger sisters Kayla and Skyla, Tyla steps up as a household front runner supporting her hardworking single mother. Preparing meals, assisting with homework and carrying on academic achievement are some of her daily duties.

Seven years ago, Tyla began to attend the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Baltimore O’Donnell Heights Unit. In search of direction Tyla formed a bond with her Mentor and Unit Director Mr. “Rick” Leandry. With Mr. “Rick” Leandry’s guidance, she began to believe that she would be more than the African American-teen age girl-stereotype in her impoverished neighborhood. Tyla vowed that she will not be a pregnant teen, uneducated or unsuccessful, “those are not options”. She has successfully completed SMART Moves, SMART Leaders and SMART Girls programs throughout her tenure as a club member.

Tyla currently plans to attend Howard University in the fall of 2017 with a double major in Biology and Pediatric Studies. Her dream is to open a pediatric clinic servicing and developing cures for diseases that plague children in underprivileged communities.
