Taylor Marie McQuaid, also known as Taylor Quaid, is perhaps one of the most passionate and determined individuals at Central Dauphin High School. Taylor has always lived in Harrisburg, with her parents, older brother, cat, and three dogs including a boxer, a boxer-lab mix, and a miniature pinscher. She has however, ventured out of the 717 on many occasions, such as trips to Canada, Disney World, New York City, and her favorite place to visit, Lewes, Delaware.

Continuing throughout life, Esther attempts to fabricate her own world of misconceptions that hold her back.
