Say Hello to Our New Intern, Lauren!


Hi there! My name is Lauren Macalalad and I am a senior at the University of Washington, double majoring in Communications and Spanish and minoring in Diversity. I’m super excited for the opportunity to work alongside the Curator team as an intern and I already can’t wait to get started!

In my previous internship, I did public relations for the food, travel and tourism, health and banking industries. I was drawn to public relations because I wanted to play the role of storyteller. I love hearing companies’ stories and sharing them with others through my writing. Curator has a lot of great clients and I’m looking forward to working with them and hearing their stories.

In my free time, you’ll often find me sipping on coffee, café hopping, practicing my Spanish or reading a book. I am also a huge dog person, so if I am not playing with my dogs then I’m most likely talking about dogs or chasing after someone’s dog just to say hi. I also really love to travel. A couple years ago, I caught the travel bug and it just hasn’t gone away! I studied abroad in Oaxaca, Mexico and Quito, Ecuador, both of which were amazing trips filled with two of my favorite things: delicious food and loud music. I hope to take off somewhere after graduation and to one day see the world.
