Lauren graduated in December 2019 from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) with a BA in English with a concentration in Professional Writing, and minor in Film Studies. She has a strong background in writing, social media, photography, video editing, and event planning.
During her time at UTSA, Lauren was a Campus Correspondent for Her Campus UTSA, which is an online magazine geared toward young women. HC UTSA is an open forum, allowing members to express themselves however they wish through their writing. Lauren believes that having the opportunity to lead by example and watching her writers succeed made the three years of hard work worth it.
Lauren also spent her final semester at university as a Marketing Intern for UTSA Campus Services. During this role, she curated social media posts for multiple accounts and worked with the Communications Team on various marketing projects and campaigns. Another part of her job was promoting the various services provided by Campus Services through marketing tactics such as tabling, passing out flyers, and speaking with students.
In August 2017, Lauren organized a candlelight vigil for the late lead singer of Linkin Park, Chester Bennington, with over 3k people coming together - both online and in person. The event gained public recognition by being covered by San Antonio news publications such as the San Antonio Current and the San Antonio Express News. She was also interviewed by multiple news channels for a spot on the evening news regarding the event.
Looking forward, Lauren envisions herself having a job involved with writing, media, music, and/or marketing.
