Robyn Taylor moved to Edmonton from the beautiful island of Jamaica in 2009. Since then, she has always made it her goal to be an active member of the community, and to give back wherever she can. Currently, Robyn focuses the majority of her time volunteering with the youth-led organization YEG The Come Up, where she assists with the planning and implementation of various programmings and events dedicated to the empowerment of Edmonton’s diverse African and Caribbean youth communities. An honours student since elementary school, Robyn is also a full International Baccalaureate graduate from Archbishop MacDonald High School. She is about to go into her second year at the University of Alberta, reading for a degree in Biological Sciences with a minor in economics. Whereas Robyn is still deciding between multiple career paths, she is certain that she wants to hold a position that not only provides others with the tools needed for self-sufficiency and happiness, but also personally makes her aware of local and global experiences alike. In her free time, Robyn spends her time reading, cooking, or listening to podcasts.
