About me

I am an undergraduate Psychology student at University College London and I am extremely passionate about helping others to see both the beauty and interest in a wide range of subjects. I believe that understanding the basic concepts of a topic is paramount and is the key to success. Once this is achieved, anyone can learn to enjoy a subject and reach their full potential. I am particularly skilled in Maths, Philosophy and Psychology; I studied these for my A-Levels. 

In addition to this, I value the importance of embracing interests outside of academia in order to widen experiences. I believe that involvement in extra-curricular activities enhances desirable individual qualities which in turn makes people more employable in the future. For example, I have been doing Ballet since I was 3 years old and have performed in London's Westend!

Interests:
Leadership:  
1) I completed the JSLA (Junior Sports Leadership Award) and the Dance Leadership award where I organised sports events and choreographed many exciting dances both in a team and individually.
2) I was one of four to be chosen to do an engineering course at Cambridge University. This was a residential trip (for two nights) where we were given a project to complete. The course ended with us doing a 15 minute presentation to a vast group of people in central London. We are also awaiting the Gold Cress Award to symbolise the completion of the 8 month project. Instead of having a group leader in our project, we took it in turns to lead certain aspects of the project. E.g: writing the presentations.

Questions Lauren has answered

If there is an omnibenevolent God, why is there suffering?

God is transcendent and therefore some of His actions and the events that He allows are unfathomable and cannot be fully comprehended by the finite human mind. However, Theists believe that God has a justifiable explanation for both human and natural suffering in the world. For example, Christians may refer to the biblical example of Job in which suffering is seen as a test of faith. The actions of God may appear paradoxical to God's '"omnibenevolent"' nature but theists may argue that we cannot anthropomorphisise a God and reduce His nature to our reductionist human understanding of what constitutes as loving; instead we must trust that He has the best intentions for all.
