My name is Taylor Hill and I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I have two siblings a younger brother, Cy and a younger sister, Tess. I went to Our Lady of Fatima when I was younger. Then I went to St. Elisabeth Academy high school and graduated in 2009. I graduated from Stephens College last year with a major in Liberal Studies and a minor in Early Childhood Education. I wanted to go into those fields at Stephens College because I love art and I want to teach children about art. I took a lot of art classes while I was growing up. I practiced every day to get better at drawing. My hobbies are drawing, hanging out with family and friends and watching movies.
