Taj Simmons


Taj is a sophomore journalism and history double major from Monroe, Ohio. Taj started writing for The Miami Student during the spring semester of 2020 in his freshman year. He became interested in the subject of journalism after he decided he wanted to write a book about his papa (grandpa) whose stories of emigrating from India to the United States in 1960 inspired him. When he’s not studying for classes or writing for the paper, you can find Taj rowing at Hueston Woods as a member of the Miami University Rowing Club, raising scholarship funds as a member of the Miami University Student Foundation, or at Miami’s softball stadium as a media intern for the team. simmontp@miamioh.edu.
