Peer Educator: Lauren


2015 Peer Educator

Hi! My name is Lauren, and I'm a senior at Castro Valley High School, right in the middle of the Bay Area!

Several fun facts about me: when I'm older, I want to be an OBGYN (obstetrician/gynecologist); my hair is not naturally red; and I dislocated my knee while twerking. I'm also deeply involved in my school, whether it's playing tennis for the school team, or being an officer for link crew (go freshmen!).
Right now, I'm in the middle of applying to college, all while trying to balance an internship, journalism, and several AP classes. 

I promise I'm fun though- I started a Feminist Club this year at my school that's dear to my heart, I go to San Francisco on the weekends with my friends, and I try to post cute pictures on Instagram as often as possible. 

I'm terribly excited to start working with teens and talking about incredibly important topics, such as safe sex, consent, and healthy body decisions. Trust me, we've all been there. Nothing makes me happier than sharing information and meeting new people (and making a difference??). In the words of Salt-N-Pepa, "Let's talk about sex!"
