Hello! My name is Taylor Clodfelter, 18, and I am an Inspiring Teen around the world! I will also be in their magazine and possibly on the cover as well! I am also a senior during this rough time! But I have not let that phase my positive outlook on life! Don’t get me wrong I am extremely upset about not having my senior activities I have worked so hard to achieve :( a little background is that I came from a tragic childhood with my father being very abusive to my family:( I told myself I would never let anyone feel the way I did when I was younger if I can help it! I have turned out to be a very positive, kind hearted, caring and a huge role model to so many others from the way I am today! I am also an Inspiring Teen to others I am in their magazine as well! I was sitting at lunch with my family thinking of what I can do right now to help others through this rough time. I thought of painting rocks with inspiring words and pictures I paint on them! It came to mind because I was thinking of my sadly, passed away grandmother, she painted ducks for the neighborhood when they would be going through rough times in life! And she always told me I was going to make a difference in the world and that is what I am doing! Some of the rocks say “Don’t let COVID win!” “Wash those hands!” And “Be the Change!” I pass them around the town for people to go out on walks and get a smile out of them! This has been my life long dream to get my story out to inspire others and make them smile.
Look below for pictures of Taylor's rocks and see how she is making a difference in her neighborhood!
