My full name is Lauren Alexis Delgado. I have lived in South Florida most of my life, but currently live in Gainesville for school. My dream has been to become a journalist since about eleven years old. In seventh grade, I won an essay contest titled "Is Freedom Really Free." As I sat on the bleachers in the afterglow, I knew I wanted to be a journalist. I wanted my words to be heard, to have them affect someone. Even if it amounts only to someone simply enjoying a good story.

Years after that pinnacle event, I am now a Junior at the University of Florida, majoring in journalism. School and my internships take up the bulk of my time. I enjoy all of my internships primarily because of the new people and situations they bring me. My stories can be found under Lauren Alexis or Lauren Delgado.
