KFCOur People, Social ImpactKyndall H.March 30, 2021

HYPE (Hungry Young Professionals Engaging) is an ERG based at our Lousiville, Kentucky campus. They recently launched their 35 under 35 campaign which aims to highlight 35 young professionals from now until the end of the year who are making a difference in our company and practicing allyship.

What is a recent achievement you wish to share?

Small win, I am growing a garden for the first time from seeds. Big win, maintaining a 3.7 GPA in school while I am working. Also, I married my best friend September 2020!

How are you an ally/practicing allyship for an underrepresented community?

I am a board member at Franciscan Kitchen and volunteer there in serving hot meals to those that need it in the community.

Who is an influential leader for you (outside of Yum/KFC) and why?

Mother Teresa has been an inspiration of mine since I was very young. Her devotion and love to those in need is what drives me to be better. Everyone has a story, instead of judging others we should instead help and show some compassion.

Tell us something about yourself you would love to share

I love scuba diving in the Caribbean, I want to own an animal rescue farm, and I love being outside in the sun. I cannot wait for summer to be here :).

What is your favorite menu item from any of our brands (it's ok if it's not your brand)

KFC Fries!
