Meet Cultures of Dignity’s Newest Intern!
Cultures of Dignity: Tell us a little about yourself!
Taylor: Hi, I’m Taylor! I’ve lived in Longmont, CO my whole life and am excited to attend CSU in the fall. I love being outside and active whether it be golfing, hiking, or running. I am also a singer-songwriter performing in the local community.
Cultures of Dignity: Why are you working with Cultures of Dignity this summer?
Taylor: I wanted to work with Culture of Dignity because I support their vision of creating environments of dignity, and I wanted to learn more about how I could contribute to their vision. I think it’s important that relationships between adults and teens are open-minded and all-perspective oriented.
Cultures of Dignity: If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Taylor: I would love to have super speed so I can travel anywhere in the world at a moments notice. The first place that I would carry myself with my super speed would be the beach, and then I’d go back to the mountains in Colorado the same day!
Cultures of Dignity: What projects will you be working on with Cultures of Dignity?
Taylor: I’ll be working with the blog and writing, and I’ll also be helping out with social media content.
Cultures of Dignity: What is an issue you see in schools you want to fix?
Taylor: An issue in schools that I see is an absence of support and help for students dealing with mental health issues. Also, I would like to see schools become more sustainable in their practices, and initiate a zero waste program.
