Hello! My name is Lauren Bickford and I am currently a junior at the University of Southern California studying Communication and Business. I'm originally from San Diego, California and come from a family of six kids. Throughout my time at USC, I have studied abroad in Paris (my first semester of college!), I have given nearly 50 tours of USC as a Tour Guide for the Office of Admission, and my latest endeavor has been been learning how to code in HTML with CSS styling. When I'm not giving tours or studying, I love to do yoga and stay healthy by hiking around Los Angeles. Food is also a big part of my life, and I am always searching for the best eats around LA. You can follow my adventures via my food Instagram account, @lunch_with_lo.
The purpose of this website is to serve as an extension of my resume, and to show off some of my coding abilities. Throughout my time at USC I have become passionate about technology and hope to pursue a career within the technology and media industries. Last summer I had the opportunity to intern with BuzzFeed as their sole intern in their LA offices. I am pursuing an internship for the summer of 2017 in the technology sector.
