When asked about her experience, Taylor told the student news site West Side Story, "Also, just being a black student, and a black student in white spaces — that's really hard. I try to inspire other black students in the district [or], I mean, really anywhere. I hope that I've done that. I don’t know for sure."
To further this goal, Taylor volunteers at her elementary school to talk to kids about science. She tells them about the work she has done and develops hands-on science projects for the kids to try. "There's a lot of inspiration going around in the high school community and junior highs, but even down at the elementary level, I still try to give back and give my time and make sure that people can see all these awesome things," she explained.
