welcome!

My name is Taryn. I am 20 years old and doing my best.


at a glance

I go to Drake University and our live mascot, Griff the bulldog, can often be found hanging around campus.


my favorite things

  • cats
  • coffee
  • books
  • humor
  • art

I absolutely adore anything and everything art related. My family and I sometimes take painting classes together; here we are with our pieces!


As a journalism student, I get tons of awesome networking opportunities. Here are some of my classmates and me with CNN’s Lisa Ling!
