Candy Rookie Kyle Reyes' decision to pursue nursing is rooted in his wishes "to help others and to become a doctor later on." As a hardworking pre-med student, Kyle traces his adaptability and competitiveness back to a passion he had growing up:
"I used to be very passionate about tennis. I could remember the days that I would feel sick when I do not get to play tennis even just for like a day or two. I discovered that passion when my dad started to bring me in competitions and that was the time wherein I got an extreme drive to be better at it."
Despite being in a demanding course, Kyle remains sociable and open to new experiences--the mark of a true Candy Rookie, "I am looking forward to meeting new people in this industry. As well as getting the chance to learn from them and to share a part of [myself] to them," says Kyle.
Kyle is part of Candy Rookies 2020, a group of influential and aspirational college students handpicked to represent #GenerationCandy in the year to come.
