We interviewed Taylor to learn more about the inspiration behind her participation in the Noble Up Program.
Audrey: What inspired you to participate in the Noble Up Program?
Taylor: I participated in the Noble Uprising Program in order to grow as a professional. My daughter is really who motivated me to participate in this program. When I learned about Noble Uprising I connected with the program instantly and the program seemed like the perfect fit especially during this period in my life. I look forward to growing personally and professionally as a Noblewoman.
Audrey: What are some of the biggest challenges that you have faced?
Taylor: Honestly I’ve been through a lot both mentally and physically. My experience with domestic abuse made it really difficult for me as a single mom to have financial stability. It’s hard to provide for myself and my daughter having the weight of my past on my shoulders. It has made me doubt myself and lack confidence that I hope this program will help me overcome.
Audrey: What do you look forward to the most in participating in this program?
Taylor: I look forward growing as a woman both personally and professionally while in the Noble Uprising Program. I am hoping this program will help me develop my professional network and skills. I hope to gain the confidence and skills to become a better public speaker for my future career goals.
Audrey: What three traits define you?
Taylor: Three traits that best define me would be determined, ambitious, and humble.
Audrey: What or who inspires you?
Taylor: My grandmother inspired me to become a neurosurgeon. When my cousin had a cancerous brain tumor it was her training as a nurse that taught me that this process can be easier in the future. This is something I want to be able to do. I want to be able to stop other people’s cousins, aunts, and family members from dying from cancer. My grandmother is the true definition of a Noblewoman. She is someone who is resilient, caring, and God fearing. I aspire to be as strong as her as I continue to grow.
Audrey: What advice would you give to other homeless or impoverished women?
Taylor: This quote from Meredith Grey is something that I would like to share to other women.
"Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we’re thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we’re thankful for the things we’ll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate."
