Lauren Anderson

Lauren is a BYU student who wanted to see the world, but she didn't want to delay graduation. So she packed her backpack full of textbooks and headed to Sydney, Australia for a semester. She explored around Australia, studying on beaches, in parks, and in government buildings. When she got back to Provo, she was still on schedule for graduation.
