**The notion of having a growth mindset has played an instrumental roll in my development as an individual on and off the court. I'm so excited to share what I've learned along the way, with the hope that the youth will be encouraged to pursue whatever they want in life with the confidence and mindset of a champion. 

Lauren has volunteered with CHOC Hospital, Athletes for Hope, Camp Kesem and has helped with the San Francisco Starlings.
