(SISS) Hi Tay where are you from and where are you currently spending your time?  (Tay)  Originally from Miami, Florida and currently located in Tampa, Florida  (SISS) What was one of the hardest things that you had to go through? What advice would you give someone going through the same struggle?  (Tay) The hardest thing I’ve probably had to go through and still am struggling with is dealing with depression and anxiety. It’s something I have had since I was a kid, and I’ve learned to cope with it by realizing that everything is temporary. The only advice I can give is to make a daily mental note of everything you are thankful for (preferably in the morning to give the day a great start.) Also, surrounding yourself with positive people and environments. (SISS) #SISS Tell us more, who is @Slowrideee and what are you most proud of?  (Tay)  Well, I’m just an awkward but absolutely funny (self proclaimed) human being. I am most proud of overcoming drug abuse and being able to get my diploma. (SISS) One year from now what do you hope to have accomplished (business or personal)? (Tay)  A year from now, I’d like to have an idea of what I would like to do with my life career wise. It’s been a struggle trying to figure out where I belong, but I am determined to find out. (SISS) How dedicatedTaylor Andreya are you to fitness? What is your fitness goal? On your body, what is your favorite body part and what is your least favorite?  (Tay)  I have zero dedication to fitness (lol I know, thats so bad) I just really hate sweating (I picked the wrong state to live in lol) and I get weird when I see people staring at me at the gym (see question 3 in reference to being awkward.) My favorite body part has to be my left leg since its covered in tattoos and my least favorite is definitely my stomach. (SISS) What makes you the happiest? What is fun for you?  (Tay)  What makes me happiest has to be my mother and my dog. My mom is my best friend and I don’t know what I would do without her. I have a 10 month old Akita named Koda and she's just a huuuuuuge love muffin.  (SISS) What were your best/worst subjects in school?  (Tay)  My best subjects were Math & English. I finished all my credits for those subjects in high school by the time I was a sophomore. My worst subjects were Science & History. I have the worst memory (people call me Dory from Finding Nemo) possible and I feel like those two subjects rely heavily on memory. (SISS) How do you deal with disappointment? How do you Keep Going?  (Tay)  It depends on what the disappointment is and why it made me feel that way. If I am disappointed in someone else, I learn to let it go and I don’t harbor any bad feelings towards a person/situation. If it’s disappointment in myself, I am a lot more critical and still have yet to learn how to deal with it. I keep going with the reminder of everything being temporary as I’ve mentioned above. (SISS) What is your superpower?  (Tay)  Shining light and positivity on people. (SISS) What is your weakness and what do you do to overcome it?  (Tay)  My weakness would have to be over stressing about things. I am such a perfectionist so if I feel like there is a slight chance for something to go wrong, I start to worry. Overcoming stress is hard to manage, but I find that stepping back and organizing everything really helps me break down the situation and be more prepared. (SISS) Can you tell us four things people might not know about you?  (Tay)  1. I can’t whistle. 2. I am not super emotional, you’ll never see me cry or be upset. It’s really hard for me to open up to people in general, but showing emotions are a very difficult thing that I have yet to overcome. 3. This answer is going to be alcohol related lol, but I can’t drink Vodka for the reason that I get very mean when I do. To me, I just think my sense of humor gets way drier (its already dry as fuck) and I think people can’t differentiate a joke from serious aggression. 4. The number one question I get asked the most is “how tall are you/ are you legally a midget?” I am 5 ft tall so I am obviously not the tallest person in the room, but it has to be one of my biggest pet peeves when I get asked about it. (SISS) Can you tell us where else can our readers follow your daily inspiration?  (Tay)  As far as social medias go I only have Instagram: @slowrideee and Twitter: @slowrideee_ , I don’t post daily but for the most part I am on it daily. Taylor Andreya(SISS) What’s your favorite quote?  (Tay)  “I am bad, and that's good. I’ll never be good, and that's not bad.” It’s from the Disney movie Wreck It Ralph, and it is the bad guys anonymous creed, but I relate to it so much. (SISS) At Smart is so sexy we love to see women who are thriving in their career or business. What are you most passionate about?  (Tay)  Ah, my least favorite question lol, like I mentioned earlier, I am still finding my place in the world and have no idea where I fit in. My passions include makeup and craft beer. Living in Tampa, there are a ton of breweries around and I have grown such a love for them. It would be totally awesome to brew my own beer one day! (SISS) Who was the most influential person in your life and why?  (Tay)  The most influential person in my life currently, has to be my boyfriend. He has such great confidence in himself and doesn’t doubt himself what so ever. He is also such an uplifting person to be around. Random strangers fall in love with his attitude and outlook on life and his energy is truly contagious. (SISS) Where were you five years ago? What advice would you tell your five years younger self?  (Tay)  Five years ago I was living in Orlando, destroying myself with toxic relationships and a lot of drinking and drugs. So many times I think about how badly I wish I could go back and just tell myself that drowning the issues rather than dealing with them is not helpful. (SISS) Can you take us through a typical day? From Waking up to going to bed, Can you give us a play by play of a typical day for you? (Tay)  My typical days are very boring and/or never the same. So it would be difficult to really answer this. I live in the moment and don’t have much of a routine. (SISS) What is your favorite book and/or the latest one you’ve read?  (Tay)  My favorite book is anything by Ellen Hopkins and also the collections of writings by Edgar Allen Poe. My current reading material is the first book to the Game of Thrones series. I decided I wanted to read the books to see how close they are to the show. (SISS) What would be a good theme song for your life?   (Tay)  You know when you try to think of a song and you just can’t? I am currently having that moment, lol sorry I suck (SISS) When do you feel the sexiest?  (Tay)  I feel the sexiest when my boyfriend has to let everyone in the room how beautiful he thinks I am. (SISS) Is there someone on social media that inspires you and is a great follow?  (Tay)  @r.dahlwriter she's an amazing poet and I love seeing her daily posts of stanzas she’s written and illustrated (SISS) What does Smart is so Sexy mean to you?  (Tay)  Smart is so Sexy means that intelligence trumps over physical beauty, and that rather than working on your looks, your brain should take priority. There is an endless amount of information to be shared and only a short amount of physical beauty.  (SISS) Thank you so much Tay for sharing with us, please follow her on Instagram @SlowRideee
