Lauren is a junior news editorial major and seeking a double-degree in Spanish language and literature. This is her fourth semester working with the CU Independent, previously working as both a news reporter and an opinion columnist. She longs for days filled with siestas, as she spent a semester abroad in Granada, Spain. Lauren hopes to one day be a bilingual journalist. Until then, don't be surprised if you hear her saying things like "no me digas eso!" or "no pasa nada" in every day conversation.
