Life of Laura Lane

This little piece of insight has been a long time coming (insert ramble about technological difficulties – for real). One sunny day when I was in New York, I spent the afternoon with Laura Lane at her beautiful studio apartment – that’s the dream, people. Watch it and believe it.

As a TV host, reporter, writer, editor, and general winner at the NYC life, Laura certainly has a lot under her belt, a lot to look forward to, and a lot of hard work behind her. In the couple of hours we spent talking all things college life, internships, making the move to NYC, and a reporter’s day-to-day, Laura was clearly one of the most dynamic and aware personalities I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking to.

For all of you aspiring presenters, journalists, and editors in fashion, sport, lifestyle and celebrity: this is for you.

Happy Thursday!
