Morning Keynote: Kayla Toney
Kayla Toney is from Houston, Texas and is an artist and scientist. Their love for the arts and
sciences bloomed during middle school. When they attended Carleton College, they did not want to
pick one or the other. So they created their own major: Photography and Optics. Their work includes
themes of familial relationships, self-awareness, self-love, and acceptance. They hope that their
future work will include themes of difference, justice, and feminine energy. Kayla is currently
preparing for art conservation school where they will help preserve the cultural heritage of Black and
African art. Kayla Toney is currently working at a non-profit where they help the North Omaha
community retain jobs and prepare for higher education.
