- Graduating May 2020
Major: Social Work
Minor: Non-Profit Studies
Junior Virginia Beach native Lauren Telinde has been a Taddie for almost 2 years now on the Photography team! She’s a social work major and nonprofit studies minor who has been practicing taking photos as a hobby since she was 13 with her first DSLR camera. A friend in Outriggers told her about TAD, and the rest is history.
Outside of work, she also takes graduation photos for fellow Dukes. During a past nonprofit internship, she also had the chance to practice her photo skills while shooting for their website and social media.
Lauren loves to be outside, either with friends or just enjoying nature herself. She likes puzzles, listens to country music, and prefers the beach over mountains any day. She’s also been to Israel where she rode a camel and floated in the Dead Sea! Especially after loving that trip, she hopes to take a gap year before grad school to volunteer in another country.
