Lauren Bucci grew up in a small town in Southern New Jersey. She is now a junior at The Pennsylvania State University, where she majors in print journalism with a minor in deafness and hearing studies. She has an addiction to iced coffee, crossword puzzles, and laughing. She is a complete music junkie who spends most of her time, and money expanding her vinyl collection. She has yet to find a genre of music she doesn’t like at least a little bit. Some of her favorite artists include The Kings of Leon, Elvis, Bruce Springsteen, and The Doors. When music isn’t consuming her life she also enjoys reading and helping raise money for kids with pediatric cancer. A lot of her time is devoted to volunteering for the largest student run philanthropy in the nation, Penn State’s Dance Marathon. Although not exactly sure what she wants, in the future she would like to live in a city, complete her vinyl collection, travel the world, see Pearl Jam live in Madison Square Garden, and write about music. More than anything she wants to make a difference in someone’s life.
