New to this – I’m Layla

Hi, my name is Layla. I’m new to this website… not really sure what to post or if I’m doing this right. But I’m 17 years old & I’m a junior.  I’m from Oak Island, North Carolina. I live with my mom and 2 little brothers, ages 6 & 13. I was diagnosed with Hodkin’s lymphoma around two years ago & had chemo, radiation, and a stem cell transplant for treatment. And now I’m in remission. (: I also do color guard for the marching band and love to sing.
