Welcome— here's a bit about me
My name is Lauren White and I am a senior journalism student at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York. I am a journalism major with a double-minor in business administration and integrated marketing and communications. While on campus, I am a member of the Ithaca College Women's Lacrosse Team and write/edit for The Ithacan newspaper, Buzzsaw Magazine, and HerCampus platform, I am also a social media coordinator of HiFashion Studios.
I'm also an intern for Very Good Light, the leading genderless beauty publication for Gen-Z, and supported the launch of good light beauty, a clean and inclusive skincare brand!
As I continue to write and edit for these student-run organizations, I plan to work on expanding my network and widen my exposure to the journalism industry. My passions for writing include lifestyle content, beauty and skincare, and service journalism where I hope to share personal stories that an audience may relate to and benefit from.
I am beginning to invest a significant amount of time into my business, marketing and communication studies, and I am hoping to broaden my exposure to these industries. Ultimately, my post-grad plans will ideally consist of finding a career where I can combine my passion for journalism with digital media and business.
What's (hopefully) next?
This is a question I probably ask myself too frequently at only 20 years old, but it's also the most exciting part of all of this. I have always gravitated towards future hopes and plans, and I have a ton (I won't bore you with the personal details). As for now, I continue to be inspired every day, and this blog is where I come with that inspiration. I plan on growing as a content creator, narrowing down my career path for all things business, communication and journalism, and having as much fun as I can while doing all of it. Thank you for taking the time to peek at what I'm creating and building, I really hope you'll stick around with me!!
