Abra L. Taylor was born and raised in Gulfport, MS. He is married to Bianca Taylor, and together, they have three children. He is one of the founders of Gulf Coast Outreach and Leadership. Through the years, his drive has always been to create an opportunity that has a major impact on the community and a lasting effect on our youth along the Gulf Coast area. With the help of the other advisors, his mission is to strengthen, collaborate, and expose the youth to a wealth of knowledge because knowledge is power. Growing up in Turnkey, he was exposed to a lot of things, good and bad. It was a challenge for him because the world had so much to offer. However, he wanted more. He wanted greater, and God gave him an outlet and a mindset to surpass all the various obstacles thrown in his path. With those challenges, that made him thrive to be a successful, Black man. Through his own personal experiences, he wants to be able to offer that same outlet to those around him. He believes it is his responsibility to lead by example and show these young males a better way of life through his character, conversation, and conduct.
