Jayla Andrews '24

Pittsburgh, PA

Hi, everyone! I’m Jayla (she/they) and I’m a Spanish and Global Studies double major on the Global Security track. Spanish has quickly become a rather big passion of mine ever since I started taking it in middle school. Three years ago, I even traveled to Spain for a school trip and visited five different cities in eleven days! I’m from Pittsburgh, PA but I can easily say that I consider Philadelphia my second home. I also graduated from a performing arts-based high school (and yes, it was exactly like the show, Victorious.) I had never been to Philadelphia prior to committing to Temple, but the more I settled into both the campus and city life, the more I realized I could never see myself going to college anywhere else. Between the random late night trips to Insomnia Cookies and days spent taking pictures with friends around the city, I knew that Temple couldn’t have been a better fit. Other than being an Honors Ambassador, I’m an editor for the Hyphen Literary Magazine. Outside of my life at Temple, I love to write and read, specifically poetry, and listen to just about any type of music. I’m also super into crystals, divination and Greek mythology. If you have any questions about Temple Honors or just want to chat with someone, feel free to email me :) I will also take any music recommendations you want to provide, preferably Spotify playlists.
