Taylor acted as the organizer when she and a group of classmates from her Academy of Science and Engineering class banded together to endeavor to build 200 solar-powered, portable lanterns to send to an underserved village in Nuevo Cañete, Peru. Taylor asked each group member to raise two hundred dollars. After compiling resources and efforts, Taylor and her classmates installed solar panels and energy-efficient LED lights onto 200 jars.
