Taylor Hamilton is a resident of Dallas, TX, who graduated from the University of Washington in 2020 with an M.A. in International Studies. She was a recipient of the U.S. Department of State’s Critical Languages Scholarship in Urdu and the U.S. Department of Education’s Foreign Languages and Area Studies Award in Hindi. Since childhood, she has been passionate about connecting with diverse communities through language and cultural understanding. Throughout her life, she has made it her mission to prove that being disabled is not a hindrance, but an invitation to develop creative solutions to reach one’s goals. 

Recently, inspired by Deaf activist and model Nyle DiMarco, Taylor stopped describing herself as “hearing impaired” and instead began using the term “hard of hearing”. DiMarco’s pride in belonging to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community impressed upon Taylor that, contrary to how Taylor had been made to feel by friends and family, being hard of hearing shows resilience and determination, not deficiency. This realization spurred Taylor to want to highlight the strengths of those with disabilities in her writing, rather than focus on things they struggle to do. 

At LCA Newsletter and Marketing Team, Taylor is excited to follow her curiosity about how various issues affect disabled communities, always working with the belief that those with disabilities are tenacious individuals with unique perspectives and experiences that need to be heard. Taylor wants to help make sure these stories receive the attention they deserve. When not writing, Taylor can be found reading novels in German, watching makeup influencers on YouTube, or refreshing her Hindi.
