A beloved Carnegie-Mellon professor, Randy Pausch learned he had six months to live thanks to a diagnosis of terminal pancreatic cancer. Pausch was determined to leave a legacy for his students and family and delivered his aptly named "last lecture," on achieving one's childhood dreams, shortly before his death in 2008.
Lauren is a sophomore and is in her third year competing in the Seevak Competition. Even though Seevak is a challenge in her schedule, she wishes to continue it until senior year. When she's not working on Seevak, she enjoys volunteering with kids, singing, playing guitar and finding new music. She is determined to pursue a career in music, but is also interested in astronomy, computer science, and hopefully traveling far. She loves playing video games, reading, researching, and watching YouTube videos.
