Lauren Henderson is currently a third year student at Seattle University. She is pursuing a B.A. in Creative Writing, in addition to a minor in Strategic Communications. Originally from Northern California, Lauren is now a proud Seattleite (and yes, she likes the weather). Recently, Lauren has joined the executive board of the newly founded Seattle University Literary Society club as the Public Relations Officer. As Public Relations Officer, she is able to put her strengths in writing, creative advertising, and social media to good use. After completing her undergrad, Lauren hopes to pursue a career that combines her passions for writing, the creative arts, and food, whether it’s through working with an existing business or starting her own.
In the past, Lauren has served as publicity chair for the Political Science Club at Seattle University. She has also worked with Wilfrida’s Closet, an independently owned art card company located in Palm Springs, as a social media intern. During her time as an intern, she was able to increase the company’s online presence on Facebook and Twitter, while also assisting with the re-vamping of the company website and blog. In addition to her professional background with social media, Lauren has also run successful personal blogs, including one focused on the Seattle DIY music scene, and her current one that focuses on her passion for the culinary arts through personal recipes and restaurant reviews.
Outside of school, Lauren enjoys taking in everything the Seattle community has to offer, whether it’s the fantastic local music scene or multiplicity of restaurants, parks, and coffee shops within walking distance. She also dabbles in roller derby and looks forward to continuing her involvement in the sport for many years to come. Some of her more tame extra-curriculars include baking and cooking, as well as watching large quantities of horror movies. Lauren also has been involved in the creative arts her whole life, from her heavy involvement as a teen in musical theater, to her open-mic vocal endeavors (typically accompanied by ukulele).
