BIO

Taylor Waits is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Philosophy for Rhetoric and Writing at the University of Pittsburgh. Her work centers pedagogy, Black teens, and African-American rhetoric while fusing her love of writing, music, mentorship, and community service to communicate the stories of groups who are often silenced in American society.


Born in Houston; raised in Washington, DC; and living her young adult life in the South; Waits combines all of her experiences in her projects. She currently does work with high-school aged students, provides graduate school consulting services, scholarship and fellowship application assistance, and also deejays on the side. She aspires to open her own high school after her graduate work, continue to service her community, and work in the academy.
