Taylor Woods
Assistant Architecture & History Editor

Taylor Woods is a senior majoring in journalism with a minor in history. She grew up in Trussville, Ala. and graduated from Hewitt Trussville HIgh School in 2009. Taylor knew she wanted to write after she won a writing contest in th fourth grade for a story she wrote after seeing poverty for the first time on a trip she took to Acapulco, Mexico.

Growing up she was always reading and found inspiration from writers like Hemingway, Hunter S. Thompson and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Her interest in history comes from watching an excessive amount of History Channel programs and her love for people and places with interesting past and stories. Since being in college, she has contributed to the Crimson White and written multiple stories for high-level journalism courses.

She decided to apply for the Alpine Living team because the experience allows her to combine her two loves of traveling and writing. After college, Taylor hopes to find a job writing for a culturally focused magazine, or on the opposite spectrum, writing a script for a television show.
