Taylor Price Personal Life
Taylor Price believed that she would be a neurosurgeon until her health changed what she thought.
She underwent significant spinal fusion surgery before Taylor Price in her junior high school. The surgery led to different medical complications. Her ability to live the life of a typical high schooler changed just a few months after the surgery.
In an Insider interview, she said, “That summer, I had to relearn to walk. My first day at high school, my brother had to carry my bag for me. I had to ask people to carry my books for me. I had a special desk that I was sitting in. I wasn’t allowed to attend PE.”
Her medical challenges made her want to become a neurosurgeon, but while in her college biology class, she realized her health situation would hinder her. Standing for more than an hour and bending over to investigate specimens was causing her back pain. And she dropped out of school.
One of Taylor’s breakdown moment, and she don’t know what to do. She asked her mom and said, ”Hey, you know, things change, but you can go into finance.’ I said, why not?

While having a vacation in Los Angeles, her friends insisted her to make videos. She went viral on her 10th video.
