My name is Lauren Molenda and I’m a Junior here at Merrillville High School. I'm also the Vice President of Merrillville’s Thespian Troupe #1692 and an Indiana State Thespian Officer for the 2020-21 school year! I’m also a Choralteen in the Advanced Choir. I love anything theatre and music related, and I also have a passion for writing. This is my second year on the Newspaper Staff, and I have loved it so much! Some other random things about me : I’m 16 years old, my favorite musical is Mean Girls, I have 3 dogs (Kobe,Keeper & Bella), I love Chick Fil A, and my favorite place to be is the beach! I hope you enjoy reading my stories!
