Byron Taylor

MA English & Creative Writing, Class of 2015

"SNHU is providing me with a solid background with teachers who truly care about their students."

Some people may think I'm crazy, but I am going for my third master's degree here at SNHU because it will compliment my MFA in creative writing and B.A.in social science. I am a singer-songwriter who can play over a dozen instruments and am also an aspiring novelist; I've also decided to spend my life going after what makes me happy.

I believe that with the English M.A. program here, I will have a well-rounded education that will make me a successful writer. In addition, I would love to teach at the university level, and SNHU is providing me with a solid background with teachers who truly care about their students. My mother passed away from breast cancer eight years ago, and she has always been my inspiration to continue my education. Studying online can be challenging since I work as a supervisor at eBay but the flexibility fits my adult life, and I am able to work at my own pace. It also helps to have a wonderful brother, Lonnie, who is my best friend and greatest moral supporter. I'm a huge fan of the Food Network and a celebrity from that channel advised recently not to concentrate on what you are now, but what you want to be. This is how I plan to reach all of my goals.

I encourage all of my fellow SNHU students, online or otherwise, to work hard for the things you want in life. SNHU is a great educational institution and a fine place to start on the road to your dreams.
