Hi! My name is Kayla Magaña. I am 15 years old and live in Southern California. Drumming is my passion, but if it weren’t for the support I get from my family, I wouldn’t have achieved as much as I have.
I started drumming in the 4th Grade in the band program at my elementary school. Even before I started the program, I knew that I wanted to be a drummer. No instrument called to me as much as a pair of sticks and I never want to stop. I am a Freshman at Etiwanda High School. Joining the Marching Eagle Regiment was the greatest experience of my life so far. I gained skill and family. I march with the Etiwanda Drumline and my goal is to become Center Snare and Drum Captain.
This is my first year as a contestant in the Hit Like A Girl contest and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to show that girls are just as good as any guy out there. All you have to do is believe in yourself, practice and have fun!
