Former Olympian and UCLA student-athlete, Kyla Ross, shared with Team USA what she keeps in her backpack to get her through a day at school.
Here’s a list of Kyla’s essentials:
Notebook: I use this notebook for English class to take notes in lecture.
Lab notebook: This is for my chemistry lab class, where I document my experiments. One of my recent experiments was making aspirin!
Sunglasses and sunscreen: Because it’s always sunny in California!
Body mist: I always carry this in my bag because I love to smell good.
Toiletries bag: My Aloha toiletries bag always reminds me of my family in Hawaii.
Daily planner: I love to stay organized with my busy schedule.
Trail mix: Always have to stay fueled. Trail mix is a great snack that gives me energy to get through my day.
