Taylor M., 21 years old
Indiana, United States
I am a senior at Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) studying Philanthropic Studies, Women's Studies, and Nonprofit Management. I work for IUPUI as a Housing Ambassador for their Housing and Residence Life, Marketing and Social Media Manager for a professor and her lab at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, and and LGBTQ+ Center Ambassador for the IUPUI LGBTQ+ Center. On the side, I do professional philanthropic consulting for local musicians and "influencers." I am also a Social Justice Scholar and a Community Service Scholar, making every effort I can to make my campus and city a better place. As the Vice President of the LGBTQ Student Alliance, I definitely focus much of my energy on LGBTQ+ philanthropy and advocacy, but my passions are nowhere near limited to exclusively LGBTQ+ issues.
In my (very limited) spare time, I like to watch Saturday Night Live and Netflix stand-up specials. I also am a big fan of NPR podcasts - so much so, that many of my friends will seize the aux cord as soon as they get into my car because they're so sick of letting me play them. I also try to go to concerts as often as I can for local bands and my favorite musicians.
