Hello, my name is Taylor Johnson, and I am a Junior at Bradley University, where I am majoring in User Experience and User Interface Design. Currently, I play on Bradley’s club golf team and work as a tour guide for the Admissions office. Outside of school, I am a member of the Delta Rho Chapter of the Sigma Chi fraternity, where I served as a risk manager. In 2017 I earned my Eagle Scout rank with Troop 178 in Morton, Illinois. In my free time, I enjoy playing a round of golf and investing in the stock market.
