Meet Lauren

Hi, I’m Lauren
I'm a junior attending Virginia Commonwealth University located in Richmond, Virginia. In 2015, I created a viral video that took the internet by storm and created #YouDefineYou project. I've been featured in People Magazine, The Today Show, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Good Morning America, and many international news stations. Now I own my own charity (#YouDefineYou) and travel across the country to talk about my experiences with mental health but also to create advocacy for mental health programs in public schools. I was proudly named one of the Top 22 Most Influential Women Under 22 and Alpha Xi Delta’s 40 Most Inspirational Sisters Under 40.

“Sea Texture Spray is awesome for creating subtle waves and effortless texture. Dry Shampoo smells AMAZING and keeps hair from looking oily and greasy. I use it every day. And Leave In Mist helps detangle and condition hair overnight! ”
