Different is an understatement when it comes to these two sisters. Akiya and Kyana Thymes embrace their differences and it is one major thing that makes their sister relationship so fun to see.
Each October, we take a minute to talk to sisters around us. We know it's not always easy keeping your relationship strong when you are constantly growing and changing. Different things work for different sisters and it's always fun to listen to the stories of others.
First in a series of four Sista Sista blog posts, are two West Baton Rouge locals we've gotten to know since opening our doors in 2016. Meet Akiya and Kyana Thymes!
Akiya is the oldest, but she's not actually old at all. She graduated from LSU in Sports Administration and will finish her second degree in next summer in Leadership and Human Resource Development. She plays on the LSU softball team. Kyana is also a student.
We first met Akiya when she modeled for us back in 2016. At the time, she was in high school and answered our call on social media to model. We've followed her journey to LSU and on the softball field ever since.
When asked what she'd tell her 18 year-old self, Akiya says to take all the risks because even if you fail, you'll learn something from it.
Kyana visits our storefront often. Each time she does, she comes in with a smile on her face and a friendly word. She's been a recipient of our LYLAS Subscription Box and we love to hand deliver hers right down the street from our store!
When asked what she'd tell her 18 year-old self, Kyana says she would embrace her imperfections more instead of constantly striving for perfection. Preach, sista.
THANK YOU KYANA & AKIYA!
We loved seeing your personalities together and had so much fun with you! Thank you for helping us celebrate six years in business! LYLAS!
