Nyla Smith on achieving success against all odds

Being just a sophomore in high school, life completely changed for Nylas as she knew it on an everyday basis. Her illness changed her entire life, and made it very difficult to be a student and maintain her nonprofit - the Hustle Hard Campaign. At one, point she was told to consider being home-schooled because her condition was so severe. In addition to her physical illness, Nyla found herself battling anxiety and depression as a teenager, and even making big changes to her diet. Despite all she’s been through Nyla continued to push through the pain and became the strong, resilient woman she is today.
