Listen. I know it’s awkward to introduce yourself in writing, but I have avoided it for five months and people are starting to get suspicious. Many that drop by the office (and probably a few of my coworkers) see me as the girl who just kind of appeared one day and never left. Maybe you thought, “who is this ‘Taylor’ and why did she break into Nectar’s WordPress to write sub-par blogs?” I mean, if I never made my presence here official on Facebook, did it REALLY happen?
Well, today I have emerged from behind my monitor to awkwardly shake your hand and get this whole ‘telling you about myself’ done. Buckle up, because assuming your attention span is quickly running out, we have a lot of catching up to do in a short amount of time. 23 years of catching up to be exact–
Hi, my name is Taylor Marrow, and I was born on June 6, 1995. I was a pretty cute kid,
but you wouldn’t know that if you saw me today.
However, like all small humans, I was also equally terrifying.
I always say I peaked in Middle school. Honestly, I don’t think it can get much better than braces, taking mirror selfies with the camera I’m holding, and wearing five million friendship bracelets that I made for myself.
When I was 15, I met this cute boy and crushed hard. For some bewildering reason, he liked me too.
I played soccer, field hockey, and lacrosse in high school. I was on track to play lacrosse at UVA.
Everything was falling into place.
Then at age 18, things started to get rough.
Really, Really, Rough.
When I was told I would start losing my hair, I dyed it purple (It’s not just a phase, mom–this is the real me).
After a few years, I began to learn how to cope with my new normal. Luckily, I had some amazing people by my side to help me.
Oh yeah, and remember that boy from a while back? He stuck around.
On the 19th, I graduated from the University of Virginia. I was able to do that because these people believed in me, even when I didn’t believe in myself. Today, I am here at Nectar working with some pretty incredible people, and really excited to see what is in store.
Whew, glad all of that is over with. Your turn!
