Who was Kailia Posey?

Kailia Posey starred in Babies and Tiaras in 2012 when she was just 10 years old and her mother was training her as part of her contortionist talent.

In a clip from the show posted to YouTube, Gatterman said, “When Kailia was younger, when she was 3 years old, she started doing pageants.

“She’s a pro when she gets to that stage, she’ll say she’s nervous, but once she gets to that stage, she’s a pro. She will hit you every time.”

She continued, “Kailia has very good talent. I mean just amazing. I don’t know anyone who competes with Kailia.”

She aspired to study aviation when she went to college and her goal was to become an airline pilot.

“Kailia hopes to show members of her generation that if they are patient and work hard, they can make a difference in the world,” the bio reads.
