My name is Taylor. I’m majoring in Communications and minoring in Cyber Security at the University of Maryland University College Europe. That is a mouthful; try saying that three times fast. I am originally from Orange County, California but my family is spread out so I like to think I am from everywhere.

My interests are writing, reading and traveling so this perfect trio of ingredients added up to my interest in journalism. Although my major is Communications, I’ve always seen myself as the reporter version, not the housewife Hildy Johnson plays in the movie His Girl Friday alongside Cary Grant. I also enjoy binge-watching movies on Netflix and YouTube.

This summer, I decided to fly back on over to London, England where I look forward to study and interning with CAPA. I’ve been here once before on a study abroad program and I look forward to be being back. The saying goes, “You learn something new everyday” and this will help me each week as I write these blog posts. When I look back on this part of my life, I want to be able to remember various aspects of it. I will blogging about my “new” experiences varying from food to travel to lessons learned and friends made. 

Keep calm and follow along—thank you!
