Kayla Grant is an editor at Blavity Inc., currently serving as the Associate Editor at 21Ninety. The New York native has a deep passion for telling the stories of the underrepresented and amplifying the voice of the voiceless. In addition to her various roles at Blavity Inc since 2022, she is also a freelance journalist, specifically writing stories in the entertainment and lifestyle space. Her byline appears on ESSENCE GU, Business Insider, Shondaland, theGrio and more. Kayla graduated with honors from both Clark Atlanta University and Northwestern University. While her official journalism career launched in Atlanta on the CAU campus, she always had a love for stories and the journalism industry. From watching celebrity interviews to binge watching Emmy-award winning television shows, everything in her life prepared her to become a journalist. Outside of journalism, the New York native loves to travel, spend time with family and read (or listen to) books.
