Hello from your new Spokester!

Hey everyone!

It’s Lauren here, your newest Spokester! I am excited for the upcoming year of traveling around Maine and connecting with 18-to-25 year olds across the state. You may be wondering what to expect from me as the newest Spokester, but I assure you it will be action-packed and full of fun. And free stuff! Expect lots of give-aways and random acts of kindness! 


I currently live with my sister and two other roommates in Windham, ME. I moved in with my sister in May after graduating from the University of Maine. UMaine was memorable four years of my life, where I earned a double major in Journalism and Spanish. I grew up Western Maine in the foothills of the White Mountains in a town called Lovell and attended Fryeburg Academy. 

I am passionate about getting outside and enjoying all the outdoor activities Maine has to offer. Swimming, skiing, and hiking are just a few of my favorite things to do.

Since I am new to the greater area of Windham, Westbrook, and Gorham I would love to hear from other 18-to-25 year olds about fun things to do. Tweet, Facebook or email me to tell me about your favorite nature spot, hiking trail, swimming hole, or anything fun. I would also love to hear about your favorite places to eat because I am always up to try something new.
