Taylor Cherry: I admire my parents, because they have taught me how to be polite and have respect for others. I was taught to strive to do the best that I can and never given up, even when things get tough. I was also taught to always believe in myself, be myself and be a role model for others.

Tallahassee Magazine: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Taylor Cherry: By this time, I will have a degree in accounting, and I will have finished sitting for my CPA examination.

Working at a small firm will allow me to work with people that I can learn from and further develop my skills. Eventually, my goal is to work my way up within a firm and have either a supervisory or managerial position.
