In this episode of Unspoken, we welcome the beloved and inspirational Lauren Paul.
Lauren is a director, writer and co-founder of Kind Campaign — an internationally recognized nonprofit organization that brings awareness and healing to the negative and long-lasting effects of girl-against-girl bullying. While studying film at Pepperdine University, she had the opportunity to work on Tom Shadyac’s acclaimed documentary, I Am. That experience inspired Lauren and soon after transitioned into a life-changing journey of Lauren and Co-Founder Molly Thompson’s award-winning documentary, Finding Kind, and eventually, The Kind Campaign. Kind Campaign has directly impacted a half a million girls, mending friendships by giving them the tools to apologize, uplift one another and step into their own power. Lauren has been honored with the Public Education Lifesavers Award from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Lauren's voice in the world is a gift to all of us. Her experience and wisdom are expansive, and yet, she holds it with such humility and reverence.
In this episode, you’ll hear about the things she’s done professionally, but for most of the conversation we go deep behind the curtain and meet the beautiful human being that Lauren is. Her strength as a mother and multi-faceted intellect bleeds through every moment. Lauren shares with such honesty, vulnerability, courage, and self-awareness that the world needs more of.
