Hey guys,

I’m Lauren. I’m eighteen and from a small town on the south coast of Massachusetts. I just graduated from Milton Academy and am planning on going to Colby College next year. I have four older brothers who are all very different from one another, as well as 8 chickens, 2 cats, 2 dogs and 3 hives of bees as siblings and I love them all. I’ve gotten to go on all sorts of adventures growing up with my brothers and I think that’s where my love for travel and exploration has stemmed from. I’m lucky enough to have them as my best friends. I live at home with my parents who have shown an awful lot of love and support to me as I leave them as empty nesters to go to the other side of the world.

In high school I was on the basketball and lacrosse teams as well as in the orchestra (I played the bassoon for all of high school and my friends still don’t know what it is). I also did a lot of photography in school and I’m hoping to work with that and my love for writing for my ISP. I love movies, movie soundtracks and some tv shows. I’m a huge fan of Game of Thrones, the Office and Little Big Lies and some of my favorite moves are Interstellar and Lord of the Rings. I also love reading so I try to take advantage of my extra time in the summer to read as much as I can. I really can’t wait to meet and go on this crazy adventure with you guys!

Inspired by Emily’s post I thought I’d leave one of my favorite quotes with you:
“Be fearless in pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”

Signing off for now,

PS the picture is of me and my two oldest brothers!
