Taylor Norman is a senior in GLS with a minor in Native American studies in CAS. She identifies as a mixed race — black and white — cisgender woman. She is multiethnic —Mvskoke, Bohemian, Louisiana Creole, Irish, German, Italian, Scandinavian and more. Norman has polycystic ovary syndrome. She comes from a middle-class socioeconomic background. She was raised Baptist and identifies as such. From Norman, Oklahoma, she was surrounded by many other Native Americans, so it was a culture shock coming to NYU, where so many people are surprised that Native Americans still exist. Norman is the president of the Native American and Indigenous Student Group.
