Meet 2015 SGH Model Taylor again with her senior photos!
Here’s why Taylor thinks she is more than just a teenager: “I’m so much more than just a teenager. One label in no way could ever define me, or anyone for that matter. I’m a daughter, a sister, a student, a friend, and so much more. Even though I might fit into the label “teenager,” it doesn’t determine everything about me. I’ve only lived 16 years, but I still have had some pretty difficult times I’ve had to deal with. I’ve learned so much about who I am, and I’m still learning more. Yeah, I’m not always perfect. But no matter what happens, I keep picking myself and continuing on. Even though I’m a teenager, that’s most definitely not all that I am.”
Leave Taylor a comment to help her erase money for Camp Tecumseh YMCA Camperships.
What are your favorite activities?
I’m a really big book nerd. Seriously I could probably recommend about 10 books for any given person on the spot. I also adore crafting, especially making bows, painting canvases, and making friendship bracelets. Singing and acting has also been a passion of mine for a really long time. I have a lot of energy, so I love being active, whether that’s walking my dog, biking, hiking, or basically anything where I’m outside and moving around!
What do you do on a typical night out with friends?
My favorite thing to do is just go to a restaurant, get a big table, talk for hours, and laugh until we cry.
What movie makes you happy? What movie makes you cry?
Happy – The Little Mermaid / Cry – Any movie where an animal dies.
What TV show are you addicted to?
Desperate Housewives is so so so good, I’ve watched it on Netflix waaay too often.
Do you have a book you could read over and over?
The Selection Series by Kiera Cass!
What food does your family cook that you will miss when you go to college?
My dad’s parents used to own a bakery when he was younger, and I swear my dad makes the best bread ever.
When you were little, what did you dream of being when you grew up?
I was kind of obsessed with being a princess. I guess some things truly don’t change!
Who are your role models and why?
My parents are definitely some of my biggest role models. They’ve truly helped me stay strong through some of the toughest times in my life, and my gratitude for them is eternal. I can only hope that one day I’m as selfless and caring as they are, they seriously would do just about anything for me and I can’t describe how much I admire that!
What do you want people to remember about you when they look back on your senior year?
I want people to remember me as someone who always was a source of friendship and positivity!
What kind of impact do you want to make on the world?
I want to change the world in any way possible. I am so drawn to helping others in whatever way I can. No matter what happens throughout my life, I know as long as I’m living with a heart open to serving others, it’ll be a pretty amazing life.
