Lauren Miranda, Editor-in-Chief

Senior Lauren Miranda is an Editor-in-Chief on the Blueprint staff. In addition to journalism, Miranda is the captain of the DGS varsity dance team and dances in a company outside of school. She is an English tutor at DGS and a member of National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, Athletes Committed to Excellence and the PE Leading program.

Miranda’s interest in journalism sparked when she took Journalistic Expression sophomore year. She has since won multiple NISPA, IJEA and Best of Sno awards for her work and aims to further her drive for journalistic inquiry this upcoming year.

When Miranda isn’t writing, she enjoys traveling, volunteering and spending time with those close to her. She is looking forward to writing for the DGS Blueprint and hopes to engage readers as well as magnify the voices of her peers.
