This month's Island Girl is Taya, a former high school cheerleader from Detroit. Down to visit some school friends, this was her first visit to spectacular Siesta Beach. Used to the lakes in Michigan she was impressed by the clarity of the Gulf of Mexico. She loves and may be addicted to working out. So much so, that her friends affectionately call her a "gym rat". She's quite adventurous and excited about living in downtown Detroit soon while studying law at Wayne State University.
