Taylor W

Three words to describe myself: Optimistic, positive, easy-going


Why I wanted to become an Outrider: I’ve been a dancer my whole life. Preforming is one of my absolute favorite things to do and getting the opportunity to dance and perform in front of the fans every game day is definitely the thing I love the most


Favorite subject in school: I always loved social studies growing up, and now that I’m in university, I love classes in the social sciences, especially Law & Society


Best concert I’ve been to: I got to be second row at Mumford and Sons the last time they were in Calgary. It was incredible!


Proudest achievement to date: I moved to Europe and lived on my own for a half a year. I’m pretty proud that I was able to take that step and be so independent and start seeing more of the world


Favourite restaurant: The Keg! I can’t get enough of their steak!


Greatest fear: I have an extreme fear of heights…or maybe just falling


Ideal place to shop: Outdoor farmers’ markets


Worst habit: Chewing my nails


Favourite iPhone App: Shazam is a lifesaver


Most prized possession: My very first pair of pointe shoes….or my 2014 Grey Cup ring


Top Outrider appearance to attend: I love getting to visit the Children’s Hospital and spending the day hanging out with the wonderful children there


Talent I most wish I had: I wish I was more musically inclined – either able to play the guitar or piano


Reality TV show I’d most like to be on: My dream growing up was to be on So You Think You Can Dance


Favourite day of the year: I love Christmas! We’ve got lot of family traditions I look forward to every year


First thing I’d buy after winning the lottery: A trip somewhere! Probably an around-the-world cruise or something cool and adventurous like that!


My biggest inspiration: My parents. They’ve always worked so hard for everything they have and have been tremendous role models


Dream job: I would love to be an International Humanitarian Lawyer working for the UN or the Red Cross


Celebrity I’d like to meet: I would love to meet Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, especially after watching La La Land


One thing on my bucket list: Skydiving!
