Lauren Hernandez

Writer

Location icon United States

My name is Lauren Hernandez, and I love to write. I graduated from East Stroudsburg University, with honors, with a degree in English. I decided to enroll in the professional writing program because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, I just knew I wanted to write. After working directly with one of my favorite professors for my last year of school, I decided copywriting, advertising, and social media management are the right areas for me. I love the versatility, the constant changes, and I especially love to research what customers want and why they want it. I am very interested in marketing, so if I can combine that with my passion for writing, that would be the ultimate job for me.

In addition to writing countless papers, I worked as a writing tutor for three years during my time at ESU. I also wrote for The Stroud Courier, our school newspaper, for three years. I wrote blogs for a website I also helped create, writingcareers.net, and I created a Twitter account for it, @writing_career. I also created all of the content on that account. Although my experience may be considered minimal, I wrote many blog posts over the course of a year, and I learned an incredible amount about marketing and social media.

I want my writing to be about something that matters. I want my writing to be about something interesting. I want my writing to bring more customers in. I want my writing to mean something to someone.
