Welcome to Twenty Something! I’m Mikyla Marie, a twenty-three something with wide eyes ready to explore the world.
So a little bit about me. I’m a BYU business grad – go cougs! A classically trained ballerina of 18 years and danced at the university level. I’m a former pageant queen and competed at both the state and national level as well. After embracing both ballet and pageants for quite some time, I’ve embraced something new – yoga. I’ve loved learning more about the philosophy, mala beads, mantras, sanskrit, etc. and all through the process of becoming certified as an instructor. Namaste y’all.
My favorite actress is Sandra Bullock with Rachael McAdams as a close second. My go-to drink is a cool lime refresher from Starbucks. I’m slightly obsessed with Coldplay. I have extreme Idaho pride. Impressionism is my favorite art style and I have a goal to see the Northern Lights.
I am madly in love to my soulmate, Kyston Tongawhiti Warwick Manuirirangi. Yes, his name his hella long – it’s a Maori thing. On May 20th, we were married in the Provo City Center Temple.
As of now, I’m pursuing my career in arts administration working at Ballet West – while teaching yoga classes and taking online design courses on the side. My goal is to obtain my Masters of Arts in Arts Administration from School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
If you ever want to go rock climbing, I’m your girl so hmu.
