Me at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Fla.

My name is Taylor Dixon and I am a journalist. Born and raised in South Florida, I was taught to hate the Gators, but that changed right before moving up to Gainesville. I am currently a junior at the University of Florida and I am proud to call myself a Florida Gator.

For three years I have been studying to be a journalist, writing and reporting more and more. I hope to someday work for a prestigious lifestyle and/or entertainment magazine in a big city. I would love to move back to Miami, but I've always wanted to live in New York City, at least for a short period of time. I love going out with my friends and just having fun, but I am determined to work hard and do whatever it takes to reach my goals.
