Colorado College Fellow: Taylor O’Donnell
Taylor is a Colorado Springs native and a first-generation college student. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in religion from Colorado College. She loved working with youth throughout high school, but it wasn’t until college that she discovered her passion for mentorship and education advocacy. After working in admissions, she knew she wanted to continue in a field where she could guide students through the challenging college application process. Taylor could not be more thrilled to be a part of the DSF family and hopes to continue learning about the nonprofit sector.
