Hi I'm Lauren

I'm from Southern California. I love photography and design. I love to work. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and studying Visual Communications. I want to someday be a photographer or graphic designer for an advertising agency, magazine, clothing company...anything that would let me be creative! I'm from a town in Southern California, about an hour north of Los Angeles. I love visiting LA and I hope to settle somewhere close to a city so I always have access to the energetic and fast-paced vibe cities bring. One of my favorite things to do, wherever I am, is exploring new places, trying new foods, and seeing new scenery- all while capturing it on my camera. I thrive on change!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon and my testimony has been challenged in the past. I have stayed faithful to the Gospel not because of what others have said or done, but because it brings me happiness. Whenever I am feeling depressed, lonely, or confused, I turn to Christ for help. He has never let me down and I know He never will. Jesus Christ is the rock of my life and without a knowledge of His everlasting love, I don't know how I'd survive!

How I live my faith

I try my hardest to be the best Christian I can be. I read about the loving example of Jesus Christ in the Bible and in the Book of Mormon and I try to emulate His example. I try look for ways to serve others and to better the community both at home and on campus while I'm at school. I like to keep a happy attitude, even when things get tough, because a smile can go a long way.
