Hey, I'm Taya!

I am

a student

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and received a B.A. in Honours Philosophy with Distinction. 

Before transferring to UBC I attended Capilano University and Lethbridge College. At both institutions, I played for their CCAA women's volleyball teams. 

Presently, I am in my second year of law school at Toronto Metropolitan University's Lincoln Alexander School of Law. 

a dog mom

I have a three-year-old mini-labradoodle named Rue (yes, she is named after Zendaya's iconic role in Euphoria)! Rue has quickly learned various tricks including selfie, bow, and snoot as seen in the video.

a tech enthusiast

I am passionate about technology, for reasons far beyond the enjoyment that my Apple ecosystem and Nanoleaf's bring me. For one, I hope to share information and learn more about technology solutions for a more efficient lifestyle. 

I also hope to pursue a career within the intersection of law and technology to ensure that tech remains user-focused and adequately regulated so that it does not mimic or exaggerate harms presently existing in society.

I am super excited to share that I have published a book: 

This Grief Thing F**king Sucks. 

As I clarify early on in the book, I am not a writer, nor did I really aspire to be one. Rather I see this book as a conversation, a piece meant to be thought-provoking, rough, and raw. It’s an opportunity to learn about grief, maybe to prepare yourself for grief, or to learn how to help a griever. But ultimately grief is subjective, and incredibly complicated. Hopefully I have captured pieces of that in this book and it can sit within the grief space as an item prompting solidarity and helping others to further understand grief.
