Lauren Dixon is a writer, an explorer, and a seeker of knowledge. After receiving her Bachelors in Arts in Pure Mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley, where she also studied Gender & Women Studies, and Philosophy, she headed off to Cusco, Peru, to receive her TEFL/TEOSL certifícate to teach English abroad. She is also an avid biker, and rides a 2017 Trek Crossrip 2, an adventuring bike she loved to take to the Bay Area hills on the weekends.

Some of her life goals include publishing a book, running a marathon, completing a triathlon, visiting every continent in the world, starting a family, and achieving financial security. She loves to connect with others, and has made it her life mission to do so.

Below is an aggregate the classes she has taken, updated each semester,  to display what any topics she will have considerable knowledge about.
