More about Taylor: In June 2014, my mom and I boarded our plane at the Indianapolis airport to head to Los Angeles for the first time. Having visited several other colleges prior to this one, I was not as excited as I should have been to fly across the country to visit the place I didn’t know at the time would end up becoming my dream school. Having grown up in the Midwest, I was very comfortable with my surroundings. I was used to the people and environment. Little did I know how different the style of living was in LA. While it was difficult getting use to the big move, it has truly been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have learned so much inside the classroom, and just as much if not more outside the classroom. And I believe my knowledge will continue to expand as the days go on. Within my Digital Media major, I have learned all about the world of digital media and what the entertainment industry has to offer. Outside of school, I have learned how to be independent and strong, and I am widely interested in other projects and opportunities that come my way. I really love to volunteer and/or attend any event regarding my industry. I also love finding unique spots all around LA where I can take photos of people, and I love to join clubs and meet new people involved with the school. The students, faculty, and FIDM in general, has so much to offer. I truly try to take advantage of that!
