Kaya grew up in Manhattan. She is nineteen in Earth years, but her spirit is ancient. Homeschooled her entire life, the city of New York has been her classroom. From the time she was a toddler, Kaya realized that her imagination was her best teacher. She has been engaging in creative works with her sister Sara, a talented writer, songwriter and artist.
