TVM Welcomes first Intern, Lauryn Green

Triad Voice Magazine proudly welcomes its first intern aboard the team. Find out more about Lauryn below,

Lauryn Kai Green, 21 years old. I am a current senior and Broadcast Journalism major at High Point University. I am a Florida native, as I was born in Miami, Florida, on May 3, 2001, and lived in Palmetto Bay during my formative years. My family relocated to the Tampa Bay area in 2008, and we have lived there ever since. My parents are Joseph and Melvia Green, and I also have two older brothers, Joseph Green II (Joey) and Nicholas. As I reflect back on my life, I am truly amazed at how far I have come. As a child, I was extremely bashful, sometimes to the point where I was literally petrified to speak or look people in the eye. It was through the performing arts where I found my voice and came out of my shell. I started taking dance lessons at four, and as I got older, I became involved in theatre and chorus. The performing arts will always hold a special place in my heart because it has provided me a sense of euphoria that I generally did not feel on a regular basis. Growing up, my long-term aspirations were to become either a veterinarian, teacher or fashion designer. It was not until I was a teenager when I decided I wanted to become a talk show host, writer and actress. My inspiration to have my own talk show derived from the 90’s sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, when I saw that the character, Hilary had her own show. Initially, I envisioned myself having a talk show similar to Oprah Winfrey, Rolonda Watts or Ellen DeGeneres; I now however would like to have a show like The View featuring myself along with several other women. When strong-willed, intelligent and ambitious women come together, we make great strides. I love to act as well because I enjoy

entertaining people. Therefore, I hope to one day earn a part on a television show, Broadway show or movie. If I do not work on camera or on stage, I am definitely amenable to becoming a screenwriter, considering how much we need more female writers in the entertainment industry. I am also passionate about writing, as I have always found it to be a cathartic experience, where I am able to release all my thoughts and emotions and explore different characteristics of myself that I otherwise never knew existed. I especially enjoy writing feature stories and articles regarding diverse societal and humanitarian topics. I am the kind of person who is willing to have difficult conversations that other people might want to avoid. By doing so, I feel as though I am helping others elevate their voices and share their stories. Currently, I am in the process of writing a short story about God and faith, as well as a memoir titled, A voice thats never been heard. I wanted to write a book because there is a lot I have suppressed throughout my life, which I am now ready to get off my chest. I hope too that my story will inspire others who either have endured or are currently experiencing what I did. Furthermore, I have found that writing this memoir has helped me learn more about myself, which is one of the most important things for a person to do. I tell people now that unless they know my entire history and life story, they do not really know me. As I am now in the final semester of my college career, I am somewhat nervous but nevertheless psyched about what lies ahead. I know one thing is for sure though: God placed me on this Earth to be a leader and trailblazer.
