Get to Know Kayla Lewis

On Discovery Mountain Kayla Lewis is played by Tamhelda Yalape. Recently I sat down with Tamhelda and asked her a few questions so that you could get to know her better—and I learned a few things too!

Ms. Jean: What is your regular job?
I’m a senior in high school, and my job after school is working at FedEx as a package handler. It’s nice, and I like it!

What’s your favorite food?
Oh, there are so many, it’s hard to decide! I really like mac and cheese.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I traveled a lot when I was younger, so I had a lot of experience being in planes, and my sister is a pilot. I always wanted to be an aircraft ground marshal, the person who shows the planes where to land. Now I think I’d
like to do something to help people in humanitarian work.

Do you have any pets?
Not really, because I traveled a lot when I was young. When I was staying with someone, I just adopted their pets as my own!

If Discovery Mountain were a real place and you could visit, what would you most like to do?
I would like to read, because I like to read now, and it would be so cool to experience hearing the stories come to life!

What do you like to do when you have free time?
I like to go on mini road trips!

What’s your favorite Bible verse?
My favorite Bible verse is Isaiah 54:17, because it provides a lot of hope to me in hard times.

“‘No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,’ says the Lord.” —Isaiah 54:17, NKJV*
