Hi everyone! My name is Taylor Williams and I am so incredibly excited and honoured to be chosen to become a part of the Sports Changes Life program as a Victory Scholar. I am originally from Windsor, Connecticut and am a recent graduate from Manhattan College (class 2018) – located in Riverdale, New York, where I received a Bachelors of Science in Finance. While at Manhattan College I had the honour to be a scholarship student-athlete for the Women’s Basketball team all four years of my collegiate career. During my time as a Jasper I started in 64 of the 117 games I appeared in and humbled to have joined Jaspers who have come before me in top 10 three-pointers made in Manhattan College Women’s Basketball history.
While in Ireland, I am fortunate enough to be receiving my Masters in Business Marketing and Management Strategy from Limerick Institute of Technology. Along with having the opportunity to further my education, I will be playing for Limerick IT, as well as the Limerick Celtics Women’s Basketball Team.
Basketball has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, and it’s been the vehicle, which has provided me with many opportunities to achieve my dream of playing division one basketball. And I believe The Sports Changes Life Program is the perfect platform for me to share my basketball journey with the youth of Ireland in hopes of inspiring them to use basketball as their vehicle to fuel a unique journey of their own. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and my biggest hope is that they can learn and take as much away from me, as I plan to learn from them. I am thrilled to begin making a difference in the world – starting with Ireland!
