Lauren has always loved fashion, from playing dress up to dreaming about becoming a fashion designer one day. She knew in the back of her mind that she wanted her future career to be in fashion, but it never seemed like a realistic idea. After participating in the Summer Textile Exploration Program through the Wilson College of Textiles her summer before senior year of high school, Lauren knew that fashion and textiles was the right fit for her. Lauren will graduate this spring from NC State and is very excited to see what the future holds.

She also has the role of being an ambassador for the Advancement of Women’s Entrepreneurship group at NCSU.

Besides school, Lauren loves to hang out with friends, watch movies, and travel to fun new places.
