Daily Inspiration: Meet Taylor Berry

Today we’d like to introduce you to Taylor Berry.

Hi Taylor, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
The thought of 34 Reasons Foundation came from just having the passion for giving back and helping in the means of my control. I’m really big on outreach, Student-Athlete Identity development, and lastly, providing resources for those who need extra support to make dreams a reality. 34 Reasons Foundation is definitely growing with various partnerships this past year, overall the foundation is taking small steps, but meaningful, impactful steps.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The challenges! Covid threw a major curveball in 2020. I had to reevaluate how I could serve the community without being in person and to remain safe. There was a lot of foundational work I could attend to, such as creating a website ( created By (, and developing partnerships with companies with similar ideals, and even with that outreach, those relationships didn’t come until the end of November 2020.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Currently, I’m a Behavioral Health Case Manager for Hands To Guide You, and I work part-time at St Anthonys Hospital (Human Restoration Unit). July 2021, I will become a candidate to become a Licensed Professional Counselor. I think what sets me apart from others, my drive and work ethic, regardless if I’m not the most qualified, the first step is being present and everything else will take care of itself, just be present and become a sponge.

What does success mean to you?
Success is what makes you happy and a list of goals you set forth to do and accomplishing those tasks. Oftentimes, we compare success stories and the joy we had for those accomplishments is minimized based on comparisons of others.
