“I am “Hurricane” Layla Newton. I have been doing Jiu Jitsu since I was 7. About 2 years ago I started doing Muay Thai and Wrestling. I hope to wrestle for college and become a veterinarian. I love animals and have rescued a few. #adoptdontshop

For the past several years, I have done a food drive and pet food drive for a local food bank and animal shelter, collecting over 3,000 pounds of food. 

I hope to be a role model for girls. I want girls to know that we can do and be anything we want. Just because something isn’t the “girly” thing to do doesn’t mean we can’t do it. Stand out and be yourself! #justbeyou

When I’m not on the mats, I love to go camping and be with my family. I am very honored to be a Sicchic Ambassador. I’m lucky to have Ms. Wendy and Sicchic behind me, always.”
