Name: Lauren Washington
Hometown: Arlington, Virginia
Occupation: ABA Therapist for children and teens with Autism and professional GO-GO Dancer
Hobbies: I love spending time with friends and family, listening, music, dancing, and FOOD. But when I’m not working, I typically spend my time organizing my life and doing “adult things” lol.
Favorite Vacation Location: I’ve been to the Shanendoah Valley and I’ve hiked up the trails, and stayed in the cabins there, which was a lot of fun!
Why I want to be a JET Beauty: Growing up, I read JET Magazine and I always loved its positivity and the way it highlighted the beauty and successes of women and men of color. Whenever I got a hold of one, the first thing I would ALWAYS do was turn to the “Beauty of the Week” to see who was featured. I always found the women to be so beautiful and always believed that it could one day be me featured in the magazine. Now that I have that opportunity, it would truly be an honor to hold the title!
