27-year-old Taylor is dedicated to journalism. She has hidden realities in the Western press. Therefore it has been in Africa, Latin America or China. Why has remained in Syria? “Rojava has been given life. I came to carry out a study of 10 days. I came to write the revolution of women.
But my life changed completely after coming here. The community approach and womens’ empathy was very impressive. I did so in the name of socialist journalism organizations in the UK. in this context, I went to Africa, Latin America, and from there I traveled to China to write. But nowhere could I breathe as here, because elsewhere people suffer a capitalist system. ”

Taylor has looked around, always studying theory, but in Syrian Kurdistan she was met with a huge practice and was excited to live immersed in it. The language barrier was important but she was saved with the help of the Kurdish Institute. “It was a whole new life for me. Before I didn’t experience the Kurdish problem. I learned Kurdish. Now I can express myself in Kurdish.”
The support of her family and especially her father was also essential. “I talked to my father by telephone. He was happy. I told him what was life here and expressed my enthusiasm.” “This revolution gave me life. This understanding of the science of revolution and women, and their mentality.”
