A self-proclaimed “Social Media Maven,” Lauryn constantly keeps up on what’s happening in the entertainment and music industry and always knows which celebrity said what to whom and where. When she’s not reacting to breaking news you can find her catching up on which memes/gifs are trending, singing along to Ariana Grande or convincing everyone that “Drake is the greatest artist of her generation.”

Lauryn loves food, fun and brunching with friends in D.C. With an aura is as bright and bold as her hair, Lauryn’s personality is as big as her dreams. One day she hopes to host her own entertainment show "Life with Lo" offering personal advice, lifestyle and wellness tips and keeping people updated on what’s going on in local communities across the country.
Lauryn also hopes to someday use her journalism experience and her leadership capabilities to highlight and raise awareness to the economic and racial disparities faced by people of color.
She plans to use her talent and dedication to her community to live out her high school motto: “Lucem accepimus, lucem demus" (We have received light, let us give light).
