She has also volunteered her time to the Educating Children of Color as well as the Women in Support (WIS), an organization that dedicates fundraising efforts to the support of research for a cure for sickle cell anemia and other illnesses, and higher education scholarships for middle through high school students. Myla Wray is passionate about assisting high school students to pursue their dreams in the visual and performing arts by helping them and their parents or guardians to gain essential skills and knowledge needed to be effective in the pursuit of higher learning preparation and college application that best suits students’ educational and career focus. “The arts convey emotion and ideas that cannot be expressed verbally. This is the beauty of art—it transcends spoken language.” — Myla Wray
