Humans of BV: Jessica Taylor


Claire Middleton, Staff Writer

Jessica Taylor is a senior at BV and has always been a student-athlete. For a total of 12 years she has been involved in gymnastics with nine of those years being on a competitive team. 

Through her local gym, Diamond Gymnastics, she has met lifelong friends and learned multiple life lessons she would not have gained if she was not a gymnast. 

“I’ve learned a lot about dedication and hard work,” Taylor said. “I might have to work a little harder at things that don’t come as easy to me, but at the end of the day it only makes me stronger.”

Taylor has recently committed to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Gymnastics team to further her dedication and love to this sport. 

“Gymnastics has also taught me how to be supportive, encouraging and have empathy for others,” Taylor said. “I can’t imagine what my life would be like without gymnastics.”
