By the time Taylor Moss finished his bachelor's degree in economics, he was sure of only one thing.
I didn’t want to wake up 60 years from now having worked the traditional, 9-to-5 grind and regret not trying anything different.”
Taylor had a love of different cultures and felt that if he didn’t explore it at that point in his life, he never would. So he took the international plunge, leading education and community-based projects in Jamaica for two years. It only strengthened his appetite for a life abroad.
