Laura is a freshman at Truman State University from St. Louis, Missouri. She is a Communications major with an emphasis in Journalism and a minor in Theatre. She hopes to use this major to reach out to kids and teens around the country and help to make an impact in communities around the world through either radio or television. Her goal is to someday have her own radio or TV talk show and meet amazing people from around the world. She enjoys writing, reading, listening to music, west coast swing dancing, and spending time with her friends. Animal rights and anti-bullying are two causes close to her heart, and she hopes to help bring awareness to these causes and many others through her work. She wants to make her voice heard, and hopes to help other teens let their voices be heard, too!
