Kanyon is a student at Bush High School and has actively participated in the National Honor Society, Science National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, Student Council, and the GBHS Illusions for two years. Collectively, she has completed over forty hours of community service and looks forward to her college experience. During her experience in the GT Mentorship Program, she not only developed assertiveness and professionalism, but she grasped an understanding of the action backstage. She has learned how chaotic a medical office can be, how doctors brainstorm before a diagnosis, and how COVID-19 has come into play. Whether it's measuring blood pressure or checking the centimeters dilated on a woman's cervix, she's got it down. Her favorite part of working in a woman's clinic is the lit-up faces after seeing their first ultrasound. Although the screenings and exams can often be upsetting, most of the patients were satisfied and healthy. Nursing is her passion, and she has learned to help others from an early age. She is currently deciding between Texas Woman's University and Texas Tech University, as both offer a great nursing program. She plans on specializing in obstetrics or pediatrics.

When a woman conceives soon after a previous pregnancy, the shortlength of the time in between pregnancies can negatively affect the mother and baby. Short interpregnancy intervals lack time in between the pregnancies, and this pauses the body’s healing process. A doctor typically recommends six totwelve months, depending on the mother’s conditions. Throughout this endeavor, a study was conducted in a woman’s clinic. Risk factors were observed through patients with intervals as short as one month to ten months. The results led to roughly 33.3% with congenital disabilities of some kind. In addition to that, 54.2% of the pregnancies were unplanned and about 58.3% considered or used birth control. After concluding, the effects of educating the younger crowd on the risks of short intervals can potentially prevent a woman from experiencing such disadvantages.
