 While describing her NFT artwork Nyla said, “My Long Neckies stand for diversity and women from all around the world. Its meant to make people comfortable in their own skin and its meant to make young girls feel powerful about being themselves.” The 13 year old Nyla Hayes is a student, artist, entrepreneur and now a crypto millionaire too.
