My name is Taylor and I live in Chicago. This spring I’ll graduate from Roosevelt University majoring in Sociology. I’ve always loved to travel, and my studies have given me a greater appreciation for new places and people. I’m learning Spanish too, which I got to use last summer when I biked through Mexico and Central America. I’ve also ridden around Nova Scotia, and have visited 48 states throughout my life. (I still need to go to South Dakota and Alaska.) Biking is my favorite way to travel because of all the incredible and unexpected sights and experiences along the way.At home in Chicago, I get around by bike, even in the winter. (Well, once in a while I take the bus too--Chicago gets cold!) I also enjoy cooking, crafting, yoga, jogging, and listening to music. In the summer, I go swimming and camping every chance I get. I love to sew, and have my own little business selling handmade hats. I’ve had lots of other interesting jobs too--I’ve been a lifeguard, a camp counselor, a circus tutor, and an organic farmer. I love adventure, and try to laugh through challenging times. I’m really excited for a summer of biking, camping, friends, and fun...and hopefully plenty of ice cream!
