Lauren Smart is working toward a Bachelor of Arts in political science at North Carolina State University. In her studies, Lauren focuses on public policy, civil rights, and American history. She has become deeply involved with educational advocacy and accessibility at local, state, and federal levels. She volunteers as an educational research assistant and policy advocate at the North Carolina Justice Center (NCJC). After college, Lauren plans to attend law school. As an individual with ADHD, she hopes that her work will aid in the destigmatization of learning disabilities and attention disorders. Lauren is excited to further her work in the disability rights movement alongside NCLD. In her free time, she enjoys writing, cooking, hiking, and theater.
