Get2Know KPRC 2's Taisha Walker

The reporter shares childhood memories & a funny story about buffaloes

HOUSTON – KPRC 2's reporter Taisha Walker fills in as co-host of Houston Life for the day. 

The native New Yorker is usually running around the city covering breaking news, but she stopped by the Houston Life studio to share more about her life behind the scenes.  

I'm from Queens, New York.  My family lives in Jamaica, New York.  I don't know if they moved to Jamaica, from Jamaica...if that was on purpose or not, but I was the only one out of my siblings and my parents to be born in America," said Walker.  

With such a strong on-air presence, you would never guess that up until high school, Walker was a shy child.  She even hid in the closet during her eight birthday party.

These are my classmates, these are people that I know.  I just did not like the attention on me.  They were like 'Happy Birthday to You' and I ran upstairs and hid in the closet.

We wanted to get to know more about Walker, so we challenged her to a game of rapid fire.
