"If someone would have told me five years ago that I would be going to Northern Michigan University, playing my favorite sport, creating a blog, and living my dream college experience, I wouldn’t have believed it for a second. I can confidently say young fifteen-year-old Taylor would be proud, but it hasn’t always felt this way."

“Coming to Northern allowed me to step into my identity and flourish. While it came with plenty of challenges and hardships, I realize now that I have grown into the person I looked up to as a kid.”

Tell The People You Love, You Love Them

“Nothing could ever prepare me for the battle I've had to face at twenty-years old. My life has forever changed, but I have never been more thankful for the people helping me put it back together.”
