We had the good fortune of connecting with Kayla Henderson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kayla, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
I want my legacy to be that I used every tool that God has given me to initiate change in the lives of others and I want people to remember that I used my influence to make positive contributions in the lives of others.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Strive Forward is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and we provide scholarships for graduating seniors while also equipping them to make sound financial decisions through our financial literacy program. It excites me knowing that Strive Forward is assisting today’s youth in meeting their educational goals. I’ve learned that despite the opposition you must keep STRIVING FORWARD because the purpose is always greater than the opposition you may be facing. Strive Forward is committed to being a source of hope for today’s youth.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love to have a good time and like most I love restaurants that have a great vibe! I’d probably take them to one of my favorite places to eat Agave & Rye! I think Huntsville has some exciting places to visit. We’d definitely do some exploring of downtown Huntsville. I’d take them to The Camp located at MidCity it is a great place to eat and also enjoy music, Rhythm on Monroe has a nice rooftop bar, a very nice and relaxing vibe. We’d probably go to Huntsville Escape Rooms, Top Golf, Dave and Busters and any other exciting entertainment venue that comes to mind.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
First and foremost, I thank GOD for the vision and for the boldness to implement it.

I would also like to shout out my parents and my siblings, they are definitely my biggest supporters! They have been very supportive and encouraging in any idea that I’ve desired to implement and I’m very thankful to have family that not only supports my vision but also provides direction if needed.
