Nayla Kidd

In an interview with the New York Post, Nayla Kidd, a 19-year-old Columbia University student who was found after disappearing earlier this month, explains why she vanished

Nayla Kidd admits to the "New York Post" that her self-imposed disappearance was due to "high pressure and unreasonable expectations.”

Her reasoning for going off the grid? "She just wanted to get away from it all. She didn't want to be in school anymore" says a police source.

The police said missing Columbia University student Nayla Kidd apparently changed her cell phone number and bank account. Kidd's distressed family said it's unlike her to miss final exams and not contact her mother.
