Taylor is humbled and honored to be chosen as Miss Long Island Teen 2017. She is looking forward to being a role model for teens across Long Island, and can't wait to continue the Long Island legacy through community involvement and any other opportunity she is afforded with.

Taylor is a graduate of Half Hollow Hills East High School where she was a high honor roll student since freshman year, captain of the kick line team, a trained dancer in all genres of dance and an active member in her school and community. Through volunteering she found her inspiration behind her platform of raising awareness for those who suffer from autism. One of Taylor's favorite experiences was performing a dance routine for autistic children and looks forward to many more opportunities where she can spend her time with autistic children and promote her platform.

In addition to Taylor's humanitarian efforts, Taylor has modeled in New York Fashion Week and will be modeling for Rubies Costume Company. She will be attending college this fall where she will be studying biology to fulfill her dream of becoming an orthodontist. In her free time, Taylor loves attending concerts, going to the beach, and, of course, shopping.
