Kylee Reynolds was on the fence for a long time, unable to decide if she should attend law school. She majored in Secondary Education and Creative Writing at North Park University before serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Sierra Leone. It was in Africa, teaching English in a small mountain village, that Kylee finally decided that her future lies in the law. Some of the attorneys prosecuting Charles Taylor, the former leader of Liberia accused of war crimes, came to the village to hear stories from the women affected, and Kylee helped to translate. It was then that Kylee knew the power of law; she saw firsthand how the voiceless find allies in the legal profession.
