Taylor 's Story

Taylor Riley has a vision to transform Baltimore's abandoned row houses into women's health clinics. She is especially interested in serving women who have experienced abuse.

Taylor volunteers at My Sister's Place, a women's center in Baltimore that provides meals, job training and pregnancy support. She serves meals to homeless women at the center and their kindness and friendship inspire her to continue serving women in need.

A Baltimore native, Taylor wants to see the city thrive. Her goal is to become a physical therapist and to one day help provide free healthcare assistance to low-income communities in Baltimore.

Taylor worked with two other Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape participants, Meshal Ali and Jeremy Vidal, who are equally passionate about their shared vision. Taylor credits the program with giving them the skills and perspective that they need to lead and work in the community, and it gives them a network of young leaders who can help each other as they move forward in their careers.
