About Lauren

As the founder and Editor-in-Chief of The You Are Project, I took a step back to study leadership and answer the burning question, “How can I create an actual change in the world around me?”

Since I was a child, I’ve been passionate about publications and writing. I wrote and compiled newspapers, magazines, comic books, catalogs, and storybooks. I love writing, but I was always especially excited at the idea of having my own platform. At twelve, this led me to wanting my own website, so I taught myself web design and launched a fan site for my favorite actress at the time. As an adult, I put these skills to use when I launched The You Are Project.

Despite my digital experience, I’ve never lost my passion for print. There’s something special about holding a beautiful designed publication in your hand, and I will forever advocate for the power of print.

What’s In a Name

It’s Lauren Dee is a play off of the lyrics to the Grease song, “Look at me, I’m Sandra Dee.”

I worked at a Mexican restaurant for a total of about seven years. My co-worker, Barry, and I would sing Grease songs together during our shift, and we often joked about me being Sandy. I have an air of innocence (and sometimes cluelessness), but I love to dress in all black and am known for the leather jackets and boots that I love to wear.

On one occasion, I visited my job on a night off only to discover that Barry had been singing, “Look at me, I’m Lauren Dee, lousy with virginity,” all around the kitchen. I thought it was hilarious, and when it came time to name this blog, this memory came to mind and It’s Lauren Dee was born.
