Taurean Small

Taurean Small is a recent graduate of Northern Illinois University. With a degree in journalism and a minor in political science, this Chicago native looks to become a public watchdog for Chicago politics.

"There's no better city to work in as a political reporter," he says. “I’ve loved Chicago my entire life so I have to give back to the city that made me what I am today.”

Taurean has experience working for several media companies, but he attributes his professional development to the experience gained from working at McDonald’s Corporation. “Working for McDonald’s was the first time I considered myself a businessman,” he says. When he’s not reporting on breaking news, he enjoys spending time with friends and family. He enjoys exploring Chicago’s nightlife with his girlfriend and sharing laughs with his brothers over a couple of McDoubles.

Taurean uses his experience in journalism by sharing the stories of people without a voice. He hopes to continue this mission through 365Black® and show the world McDonald’s commitment to the African American community.
