The Chimes

Lauren McBride
Lauren McBride is a sophomore Cinema and Media Arts major who enjoys art, storytelling and some quality fried rice.

Hi there! I come from the far-away city of Flower Mound, Texas. However, when people ask me where I’m from, I always tell them Dallas, because nobody at Biola has ever heard of the quaint little town of Flower Mound. I am passionate about many things, including making cute coffee shop discoveries, finding adorable dogs out in public and binge-watching my favorite TV shows. I have always had a very artsy and creative spirit, so you can likely find me drawing, shooting photos or editing photos and videos in some of my free time.

My creativity has given me a passion for storytelling, which I have been able to exercise during my time at Biola and now through the Chimes. I am a Cinema and Media Arts major and thoroughly enjoy telling stories visually but have always had a knack for telling stories through writing as well, which is why I decided to direct some of my talents towards journalism in addition to film. Writing for the Arts and Entertainment section of the Chimes combines my love for film and writing. I am excited to learn more and experience life with this incredible group of people this semester!
