Hello there! My name is Lauren and I am majoring in Innovation in Biodesign. I was born and raised in sunny LA. I enjoy sharkwading, playing basketball, and doing archery and digital art. I decided to join the Financial Wellness Team because I am able to build a foundation of financial literacy while also empowering other students to be able to do the same. My financial tip is to begin building credit early – this will greatly benefit you in the future!

A fun fact about me is that I was in a Disney show. I enjoy ziplining upside-down, thousands of feet high above the beautiful Hawaiian valleys, and scuba diving with sharks and dolphins deep in the Pacific Ocean. Lastly, UCLA has been my dream school since fifth grade and I am so proud to be a Bruin!
