Rose of Tralee International Festival - About

Arizona Rose: Kayla Gray

Hello! My name is Kayla Gray and I am 27 years old living in Arizona, home of the Grand Canyon. I spend my days working in organ donation, specifically finding homes for organs in the research community. For more than ten years, I have been doing a wide of array of experiments and exploration into the human body and have found my purpose in discovering the unknown.

Ohio Rose: Danielle Goebel

My name is Danielle Goebel, and I am 28 years old. I live in Cleveland, Ohio home of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. My grandmother, Mary Alice Goebel (Fox), immigrated to the US from County Mayo. One of my favorite memories was touring Ireland with about 40 of my family members. It was a blessing to be able to see my Grandma’s home town and pray together over her mother and brother’s grave stone. My Grandma and my Aunt Rose encouraged me to apply for the Rose of Tralee.
