What is her Fangirl interest?
Lauren loves all of the Star Wars movies! She loves fencing, swimming and school. She is a straight A, honor roll student who loves to read. She spent all of last summer collecting books for the kids of Moore, OK that lost everything to the tornado on May 20th, 2013. By the time she was done she had collected well over 50,000 books!!! We flew her there to meet the kids of Briarwood Elementary, where most of her books were sent. This year she spent her spring collecting books for the kids of Darrington, WA impacted by the mudslide. She was able to collect enough books to send each student one new book with a positive message written in it. For the last 2 years she has attended Star Wars Weekends at Hollywood Studios in Disney World dressed as Ahsoka Tano and last year she got to meet you, Ashley! That was a great experience! Thank you! We’ll be back there again this year! Hope to see you!
