About Me

IMG_4911Hi! My name is Lauren and I am a last-semester Senior at the University of Michigan. I am a Communications Major and an aspiring sports broadcaster/journalist. I have grown up with two brothers, and raised like a boy: loving all things sports. I love the idea that sport is a language, just like English, Spanish, or French. Sport is it’s own entity. It’s a way to talk to and understand other people. I love that 20 people can watch the same game, but each person can get something different from it. I would love to be a broadcaster in the sports industry to take any given game, put my own spin on it, and report it in a way that maybe other people haven’t thought of. Sport is dynamic. Sport is teamwork. Sport is physical. Sport is challenging. Sport is exhilarating. Sport is dedication. Sport is uniting.

Since I mentioned my family up there, figured I should talk a little bit more about them. They are a huge part of my life. I come from a family of five: my mom, my dad, my two younger brothers, Cory (19) and Alec (16), and me. They are more than just my family, they are my best friends. Here is a picture of us taking a selfie in front of Christmas lights in the middle of Rochester, MI. We were judged pretty hard core, but YOLO.


Yes, we do take family selfies

Totally irrelevant, but here are a few fun facts: I love pickles. If I had to choose one food to eat for the rest of my life, it would be pickles. I enjoy running and have ran two marathons – currently training for my third in Copenhagen, Denmark. I like playing the guitar, writing music, and singing. I like trying to make the little things the big things. And my favorite fun fact of all time: Taco cat spelled backwards is taco cat. Mind. Blown.
