Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello world! My name is Laura. It's been over a year since I've
moved here from Ohio. I absolutely love California and I never want
to leave, but the midwest will always have a special place in my
I still feel like I have a lot more to experience in life. I came
straight through from college to go to law school here, so I've
never worked in the professional world. It is an honor to have such
a great education, and I really value this opportunity. But law
school is very challenging, and law students can stress me out
sometimes (like, all the time). Therefore, I am here to meet
different kinds of people doin their thang. Hopefully, people who
are very laid back about life!
My whole purpose in life is to make a difference. Coming from a
relatively privileged/sheltered background, I really grew up after
I left my bubble at home. I did some volunteering in college
working with youth women in prisons, tutoring in low-income

at a legal non-prof. I loved it so much! It's heavy stuff but it's
such a rewarding job :)
I'm also trying to learn Spanish so I can talk with clients. I have
quite a passion for language, and after I studied abroad in France
for a summer, I got this bug to travel and to become immersed in
all different types of cultures. So... any Spanish speakers out
there willing to help me out?
I recently became a vegan a few months ago so I"m trying to learn
new vegan recipes. Float me any ideas if want.
Other than work and school my stress release is going out on the
town and dancing until the club shuts down. Sometimes I just have a
dance party in my room for exercise.
I’m really good at

social, and being caring/compassionate.
I'm also pretty good at push-ups, no big deal :P

My eyes/eye lashes apparently! But I like to think it's my dazzling

You're not allowed to judge me for any of the following:
Keeping Up with the Kardashians
Lady Gaga (or maybe RHCP)
Sushi (only veg)/ Chinese food
I like a variety of food/books/movies but I don't really care to
list them all. For me, this question is pretty irrelevant for
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
It's cliche but all you need is love! Everything else I could do
without if I had to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
It rhymes with "vex." Yupppp, Tex Mex!
On a more serious note, I think a lot about social justice, power
dynamics, patriarchy, current events, and radical change. I'm
definitely an idealist and think a lot about how society should be
