Taylor's mother is an excellent mentor for her daughter. She is encouraging, strong, and demanding..... she teaches her daughter to go out and get what she wants..... not to settle for less. Alice inspires her daughter when she needs a push and comforts her when things go wrong. Her role is actually that of "role-model". She teaches Taylor what life can be.
