The American Among Us


Graphic design student Holly Taylor is a freshman with an unwavering student-work ethic and a big life off campus.

She portrays Paige Jennings, the daughter of Soviet KGB agents raising their family in suburban Washington D.C., on the critically acclaimed FX television network series, The Americans.

A recent transfer student, Taylor has been working full time and attending public schools since the age of six. She’s always been committed to earning good grades and being an active student, yet finding a school that supported her work-student ambitions wasn’t easy, until she found Kean.

“Kean was the only school that would let me attend, and I can't tell you how much that means to me,” Taylor said. “My education is my priority, and I'm glad I've found a school that will let me pursue it while also furthering my career.”

Taylor is currently enrolled part time at Michael Graves College but plans to take on a full schedule to catch up on earning credits toward a degree in graphic design, with a focus on interactive advertising.
