About: Hey guys! My name is Laura and I am currently a senior double major in Advertising and Physical Culture and Sports with a concentration in Sports Media and pursuing a Business Foundations Certificate. After graduating in May I'm planning to pursue a career in either Media or Community Relations in sports.

I was born and raised in Dallas, TX by two people that have always encouraged me to make mistakes and learn from them, to experience life to the fullest, and to never have any regrets. My parents are incredibly sarcastic yet the most easy going people I've ever met. My mom likes to joke around and say that I got all my negative qualities, especially my stubbornness, from my dad but my dad says I got all the best from him.

Why I Ride

When I heard about Texas 4000 my freshman year I instantly knew that it was an organization and cause I wanted to join. I ride for my dad because at the age of 4 he lost his mother during childbirth and shortly after lost his dad to cancer. His charisma and determination have been a driving force in my life, especially over the last couple of years. I also ride for our pillar of charity. Not just the monetary charity but the charity of giving a voice to a cause. I’ve been very fortunate to not have experienced a life with cancer so far but others have not been as fortunate. I want to be there for others and allow them to share the fun memories and stories of their loved ones.

Lastly, if there is someone you would like me to ride for, please feel free to send me an email. Thank you so much!
