Meet Huck House Youth Award Winner, Chyla Larry.

Chyla came to Huck House due to problems with her relationship with her mother. She describes her past behavior as “aggressive” due to stress with family and school. When she first came to Huck House, she struggled with communication, but she has improved tremendously. “I talk a lot now,” Chyla says with a chuckle. One of her proudest accomplishments is that she can have conversations with people. She attributes this to her personal growth and now having a lot more confidence in herself. Chyla is also proud of her improvement with her behavioral management.

Since she has been at her new school, Chyla has managed to control her anger and stay out of trouble. She is very thankful to her grandfather for being a major part of her support system. Chyla says her naysayers motivate her and fuel her to achieve her goals. She plans to attend college to become a social worker.
