Meet Kyra: Our Volunteer Outreach & Support Intern


March 26, 2015


What is your superhero name?

Kyra Nothing To Fear-A

Why do you like working for 826NYC/Why do you work for 826NYC?

I get to work with the many creative, genuine and hilarious people who populate 826NYC, from the staff and volunteers to our incredible students.

Complete this sentence:

I am because I think I am.

If you could have witnessed any event in history, what would it be?

This is a really hard choice for me, because I really wish traveling back in time (just to observe!) was possible. Right now I would have to say either Ancient Egypt during the construction of the Giza pyramids OR Paris in the 1920s.

One thing you believed as a child that you wish you still believed?

That standardized tests were really “standard eyes tests” and they just had to do with testing your eyesight.

If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which would you choose?

Legend of Korra (I was meant to be a water-bending master)

What is your karaoke song of choice?

Valerie by Amy Winehouse!
