Lauren is a health and science reporting student at the Medill Graduate School of Journalism. She enjoys traveling, collecting random facts, and playing the guitar poorly. She also believes that the Associated Press should remember the sanctity of the Oxford comma.
Her goals include living in Antarctica, base jumping off the Burj Khalifa, writing for National Geographic, and understanding why women wear high heels.
Lauren thinks that the best writing is short, snappy, and non-fiction, much like herself. Her weapon of choice in a bar fight would be Chuck Norris' jawbone.
