Since Lauren first visited Asia in 2005 she knew from then that she wanted to call it home. She always had a passion to work with people and working in the field of community development. Her first working adventure in Asia took her to South Korea where she taught English. Then she completed her MA in International Development at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok. Following this, she worked with World Education on the Thai- Myanmar Border training young adults in community development. She then moved into Myanmar in 2014 to work in the field of access to justice and legal education with BABSEACLE. She is very excited to be back in Bangkok and to be joining the JUMP! team and the JUMP! community.
