2020-2021 FHSS Graduate


Taryn Rebecca Alexander

Bachelor's in History

What is your favorite thing about BYU?

Easily the professors. Although there is a lot to love about BYU (the football games, creamery ice cream, the beautiful buildings, etc.) I have had some of the most amazing teachers throughout my time at BYU.

What was the best learning experience you had?

I don't know if I could pin-point one single experience. However, it was during my experiences at BYU that I have discovered a greater understanding of what I am meant to, and want to, do in life. Experiences both in and out of the classroom have helped me to realize what I am meant to do after my journey here is done.

What/Who are you grateful for as you reflect on your college experience?

My husband Kavan has been so supportive and helpful during my journey to graduation. I have had many doubts about my career path due to what others have said to me, but Kavan helps me remember and realize my potential day in and day out. I would not be here today if it weren't for him. I am also so grateful for my family. My mom, my dad, Adam, Kyle, Camille and Ethan have always been there for me and are always ready to make me laugh when life gets stressful.

What's next for you?

Teaching! I am excited to start my journey teaching at the high-school level. In the future, I will be continuing my education by pursuing a Doctorate Degree.
