I Am UWG

Taylor Bryant

Taylor Bryant is UWG.Years at UWG: None. It’s only been about 6 months.

My job title: Communications Specialist.

What I really do: Share with the media all of the greatness going on at UWG through press releases and human interest stories  .

Birthplace: Atlanta, GA.

Family: An amazing husband, Hylan. No kids yet, but it’s definitely a part of the plan. My parents, grandparents, godmother, sister and aunts are all rock stars in my life.

People describe me as: Outgoing, creative, stubborn and passionate.

My favorite things to do: Travel, spa days, dance, horseback riding, zip lining and finding ways to better myself in an effort to better others.

My proudest accomplishment: Learning how to be myself regardless of how uncomfortable it may be in some situations.

My passion: Helping and motivating others.

My pet peeve: Liars and broken promises.

Before UWG, I: Was a radio talk show host, news reporter and on-air traffic reporter for the top three stations in Montgomery, Ala.

I joined UWG because: It feels like a home away from home.

I stay because: The ladies in my office make me laugh at least twice a day and since I believe laughter is the best medicine that definitely makes the job that much better.   

The best advice I ever received: Don’t worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself.

When I was a child, I wanted to be: A television news reporter. I always thought I could be the next Monica Kaufman at Channel 2. 

Most people don't know that: I would love to be a motivational speaker.

My favorite quotation: “I don’t give because I have, I have because I give.”

The book I think everyone should read: The Bible.

The movie I think everyone should watch: The Pursuit of Happyness.

My favorite memory: Spending time with my Grandfather (Taylor) is always unforgettable and priceless. He’s wise and entertaining at the same time.

The person (alive or dead) I’d most like to meet: Oprah Winfrey.

What I would most like to have if castaway on an island: Music on my iPod.

What I would do if I won the lottery: Start a foundation that focuses on college retention with African American males and first generation students. Of course I have to pay bills, take care of parents and a big trip—you know, all the basics.

What I most want to contribute to students: A sense of hope that all things are possible if they believe.

Although you didn’t ask, I’d like to tell you anyway: I aim to drink a gallon of water a day. At least 74 ounces, if I don’t make a gallon.
