Taylor E. Pinkney is a 2021 graduate of Prosper High School in Prosper, Texas. Taylor interned for two summers with an interior design firm, served as a worship leader in children’s ministry at her church, and founded a home décor business during the earlier months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Taylor’s passion for architecture and interior design began at an early age, as she has always enjoyed touring model homes and local buildings. “A diverse community of people in the architecture field enhance the profession by placing a spotlight on unique ideas, encouraging promotion in the field, and complementing businesses,” she says. Taylor will pursue a Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Houston and plans to use her inventiveness to serve and unify communities.
