About Me

“However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.” –Stephen Hawking


Hello! My name is Kayla McGill, and I’m an instructional and graphic designer from Cincinnati, Ohio, striving to make a difference in education. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree at Northern Kentucky University, majoring in Media Informatics and minoring in the Japanese Language. After my undergrad journey, I pursued an opportunity to help guide students through successful pathways as others helped me. In 2019, I served as an AmeriCorps Ohio College Guide at Cincinnati Youth Collaborative, committing to help secondary students within Cincinnati Public Schools create pathways to success with post-secondary education and career opportunities. During my service term, I developed a passion for creating a meaningful educational experience for all types of students and decided to continue my educational journey at the University of Cincinnati. I have recently obtained a Master’s degree in Instructional Design and Technology with a focus on Design and Development Specialization. I will continue striving to help, inspire, and empower others by creating the best educational experience for all students.
