Why I came to Taylor:

It gave me a chance to experience another culture. I only enjoy it because I believe it is where the Lord wants to serve Him at present.

Advice to incoming students:

Do not judge a book by its cover. Read it, and then judge it.


My hobbies are Reading, gardening, walking, and talking. A little known fact about me is that I am the first born in my family and the first to go to college.
